Updating the Open Transport roadmap

In an earlier post, we showed our roadmap of intended functionality, broken into 3 phases. Since then we have discussed the possibility of adding a third data entity to the first phase: concessions (in addition to tickets and journeys).

Concessions, also called travelcards/railcards or entitlements provide a discount across one or mode modes of transport – mainly public transit.

This additional entity was felt to to be sufficiently important to add to the initial release of the specification as we believe that not having it would be a further barrier to the adoption of account interoperability… especially in a younger demographic, who tend to be early adopters of technology.
