"The expansion of our technology into a European market is a significant step for us and is a clear indication of how successful the m-ticket is for transport operators. We have built a product for Syntus that will enable all their customers to pre-purchase their travel tickets, delegate purchase to a minor or other person unable to buy their own ticket, check travel schedules with up to the minute information and become more efficient in their travel planning. We are delighted to be working with Syntus and hope to continue our push into other European markets."

"In the UK this successful app already exists. It shows how easily and securely purchasing and travelling can be. We want our customers to have this convenience and believe that we will increase our customer service with this app. In addition, we will examine how our guests respond to the payment through an app. Depending on the result, we will enable the integration of app and OV chipcard."
