As difficult a common Ticketing between the various companies has been how the revenue from the sale of the Tickets will be distributed. 90 years ago, the LPP was launched in Berlin so successful, because they had offered a joint Ticket for all means of transport.
such App already exists since September 2017 in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius - and that is exactly this System will also be deployed in Berlin. The company Trafi reported on Monday morning that it will enter into a partnership with the BVG.
According to Trafi Berlin is the first city in Europe that such a System offers. In Vilnius, the city of the Trafi App benefits, because the data can be used for traffic planning.
