Solution overview

The Transport payment management solution consists of two phases: enabling the use of transport systems and paying for completed trips.

During the initial phase, the contactless credit card receives a formal EMV validation check, as well as a cross-check with the Blacklist. Then, when the customer begins their trip, the credit card validation phase takes place, employing the credit limit established by the merchant. The activation takes place in near real-time and is therefore comparable – from the Gateway Transit standpoint – to an online management of the operation.

The actual payment of the trip takes place during a second phase, to ensure the application of the best rate based on the individual user’s travel habits, as well as potential membership programs.

Security and certifications

There is no innovation without security. N&TS GROUP has chosen to guarantee it at 360 degrees.

Data protection for clients and their users is at the heart of N&TS GROUP’s research and development systems. With this in mind, the certifications obtained in various fields are the most important guarantee of reliability, safety and compliance with global standards. This constant commitment has allowed N&TS GROUP to become protagonists in the digital revolution and to emerge in the markets of reference.
