GERMANY: Siemens Mobility subsidiary eos.uptrade has used its XiXo ticketing software to add ‘best price’ ticketing functionality to Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen’s SSB Move app.

Once the user has chosen a journey in the planner, the price overview shows a Best Price Ticket option. If this is selected, the system will then add up all journeys made within a month and automatically charge the lowest price. This means passengers no longer need to decide whether a single, daily, weekly or monthly ticket is the best choice.

The integration of the ticket into SSB’s existing mobile store means there is no need for passengers to register again, and the payment method specified by the customer is used for monthly billing.

‘Having the ability to always get the best price from the full spectrum of mobility options significantly improves the passenger experience and enhances overall quality of life’, said Andre Rodenbeck, CEO for Rail Infrastructure at Siemens Mobility.
