New ticketless transport tracks where you go via bluetooth - bbc news

BBC News published this video item, entitled “New ticketless transport tracks where you go via Bluetooth – BBC News” – below is their description.

Contactless payments have become commonplace, but one Italian city has taken it one step forward across its transport network, as BBC Click has found out.

In Genoa, Bluetooth beacons dotted across the city track the journeys that passengers make.

It means that buses, boats and trains can all be used without the need to tap or swipe a ticket machine, as the technology tracks journeys, and calculates a fare at the end of the day.

Data gathered is even being used to monitor emissions across the city – and determine which services are busiest at any given time.
