Mobile ticketing company, Corethree, has reached the milestone of one hundred million mobile tickets sold on behalf of its transport operator partners, marking the growing popularity of mobile ticketing technologies and how m-tickets are becoming the default choice for consumers to travel and experience the smart city.
Corethree provides m-ticketing and data insights to some of the country’s largest transport operators including
First Group, Arriva, Transport for London (TfL), Lothian, and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) amongst many others, powering the future of mobility.
The company’s m-tickets sales have grown at a rate of 2000% between 2015 and 2019, processing fifty million tickets in February 2018 alone. The sharp acceleration in digital ticketing uptake saw Corethree selling another fifty million only fourteen months later, arguably making 2018-19 the year when mobile ticketing came of age.
Corethree’s data intelligence platform – Core Engine – provides operators with insights as to the way passengers move and travel around the UK, enabling them to improve their business models and develop stronger consumer relations
Reaching the one hundred million tickets milestone at such speed is a world-first accomplishment and testament to the consumer readiness for embracing mobile-native solutions across transport, entertainment and retail. M-tickets are about so much more than faster ticket purchasing and shorter queues.
