AUSTRIACARD is pleased to have won again a 4-years contract and be one of the suppliers for delivering a smart solution for one of the most prestigious public transport projects in the world, the Oyster card.
The Oyster card is a smart card that can be used instead of a paper ticket and is state-of-the-art, being equipped with NFC-technology. Besides the simple usage in fares being deducted from the credit balance on the card as the cardholder travels, further usages include adding Travelcard season tickets, Bus & Tram Pass season tickets and setting up an auto-top up to enable automatic money transfer from their credit or debit card to the Oyster card.
AUSTRIACARD, a major global player, has profound experience with secure smart cards and is proud to be one of only four suppliers globally. AUSTRIACARD has already delivered around 14 million cards to TfL.
