Travel app 9292 will offer e-tickets for public transport in the app so that travelers can immediately buy a valid ticket for that trip after planning a trip. 9292 starts Thursday with a pilot among twelve hundred Android users. The travel app hopes to put the service online for a larger audience "at least before the end of this year".
The function should make it possible to simultaneously purchase tickets for all means of transport used for a journey from A to B by public transport - train, bus, trams, metro and ferry. After purchasing the e-ticket, the traveler will receive a QR code that is valid for the entire journey.
To be able to offer the tickets, 9292 works together with Tranzer, a service that has been offering public transport tickets for some time. Service costs are added on top of the amount for the trip, "to make the service available".
At the moment, e-tickets are not yet available for all carriers via the 9292 app. "We try to connect the other carriers as soon as possible", a spokesperson for 9292 told NU.nl.
