Secure contactless ticketing, made possible by technologies like MIFARE® and NFC (Near Field Communication), has enhanced public transport by providing fast and easy access, especially during rush hours. With MIFARE and NFC available on smartphones and other mobile devices, what began as a way to automate ticketing for mass transit becomes the backbone for a smart city. Expanding beyond the installed base of mass transit, MIFARE and NFC provide a strong, flexible, and secure platform on which to build. While it’s true that MIFARE is used by 77 percent of transport ticketing systems worldwide, covering almost 750 cities, it is also the basis for secure transactions in micropayment, hospitality access, loyalty, leisure, and more. NFC is both backward-compatible with MIFARE and an expansion of the technology, enabling an even wider set of applications.
