ITALY: Trainline’s B2B arm Trainline Partner Solutions has supplied open access high speed train operator Italo with an online multi-modal ticket platform enabling passengers to book travel to destinations beyond the 60 stations that it currently serves.
It launched July 21, adding tickets for Italbus buses and Trenitalia regional trains to and from Italo’s stations.
TPS said the agreement is its first to provide a white label platform for a continental European operator. It already provides a similar service for six UK operators, and works in partnership with a number of travel sellers across Europe, while Trainline’s train and coach app ‘continues to thrive’ in the B2C market.
‘This is simply the first step in our partnership with Italo, and we will continue to work closely with them to integrate into all of Italo’s distribution channels’, said TPS President Champa Magesh. ’Over the coming months and years, we will develop innovative new services and ensure Italo’s customers can benefit from the best travel experience available.’
