Piloting of the new zone-based ticketing and payment system Waltti begun on July 1st 2014 both in the Jyväskylä urban region and in public transport in the Joensuu region.
The pilot in order to develop and implement the system will be carried out with a selected and limited user group. The aim of the pilot is to test the functionality of the ticketing system so that the service usability, from payment to ticket income recognition, works as planned.
At the start of the pilot study, the ticket assortment is still limited and different ticket products will be introduced gradually in August and September. From the customer’s point of view, this means that old travel cards can still be used and loaded after the beginning of July. From the beginning of October the system is open to all users in the Jyväskylä and Joensuu regions with all ticket products. This year another 2-4 cities are likely to join the Waltti system.
