The Open Transport initiative has appointed smart ticketing and public transport expert Dan Schoenhofen to its Board.
Dan has over a decade of public transport ticketing experience across a variety of modes and operators. He was a key contributor to the successful £300m business case for the modernisation of the Glasgow Subway and, as part of the resulting programme, delivered the UK’s first fully smart ticketing system with the largest e-purse outside London.
As well as project delivery for light and heavy rail, bus, coach and ferry, Dan also chaired the forum of the ZoneCard ticketing arrangement in Strathclyde and was previously responsible for customer management of Subway smartcard and the Scottish National Entitlement Card holders.
Hayden Sutherland, Founder & Chair of Open Transport stated “Having Dan join the Open Transport board brings a wealth of public transit experience to the team. His input as a smart ticketing specialist also helps ensure our work to develop a Global Open Standard for mobility account interoperability covers as many transport modes as possible.”
