Chartres: the first city in France with EMV Open Payment
Chartres, 5 novembre 2018: the Filibus network in Chartres (France), with the sponsorship of MasterCard France, is launching the EMV contactless bankcard ticket payment system directly on board the buses.
This is the first complete system, as it is present on the whole transport network, and integrated, as it allows the process with a single validation terminal of both transport specific media (Calypso cards, contactless tickets, QR-code…) and EMV bank cards.
The Chartres Metropole transport authority is therefore the first agglomeration in France to launch this type of service, thanks to the Electronic Ticketing System entirely implemented by AEP Ticketing Solutions.
Given the importance of the event, AEP has produced a dedicated document to describe the Chartres system.
