This is a great week for The Open Transport Initiative. Not only have we launched the Data Spectrum for Transport and Mobility to an enthusiastic reception, but we are now also delighted to win Ticketing Enabler of the Year 2021 at the Global Transport and Ticketing Awards.
This is a new category for the Transport and Ticketing Awards this year and was created “to recognise an enabling solution that supports ticketing innovations across the industry.”
The Open Transport Initiative was launched in October 2019 with the purpose of developing and promoting Open Standards for transport & mobility data interoperability. In that short space of time the Initiative has gained a huge amount of momentum and built significant awareness across the sector.
Winning the ‘Ticketing Enabler of the Year’ award adds validation to all the effort that the team have put in over the last 2 years. We hope that this helps to communicate the work of The Open Transport Initiative even further and encourages transport authorities, transport solution providers and Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) platforms to adopt our free standards and move the sector towards the complete adoption of customer data interoperability.
