Providing smarter mobility & ticketing

We bring innovative, multimodal and modular solutions to transport agencies worldwide in order to support their mobility strategy. 

Open Account Based Ticketing Platform

Accessing and paying for public transit should be simple.

Open ABT (Account Based Ticketing) simplifies access to public transport. Passengers can choose their preferred ticketing media (smartphone, smartcard, contactless bank card...) and Open ABT takes care of the rest: from creating a customer account to managing discounted fares and aggregating all validation data in a simple dashboard available online for the customer and the transit agency.

Our platform is designed to allow the consolidation of an account-based approach and a "card-centric" system. 

Mobile App

Deployed in over eighty cities across the globe, the Open m-TICKET application gives riders the flexibility to pay and validate their fare with their smartphone.

A smart platform to manage your fares and mobility offering

We consolidate account-based and card-centric approaches by reconciling physical and digital media around a unique customer account, giving agencies the ability to monitor sales and validation of fares in real-time. 
By surfacing key data to agency personnel, when they need it, agencies can intelligently communicate with their riders, monitor their systems for fraud and innovate more quickly.

Paragon ID is well known and recognised in the transport and Smart Cities sector, providing access control solutions to over 150 cities in the world.

The Open ABT (Account-Based Ticketing) Platform simplifies the rider's journey with a multitude of payment and validation options, and gives transit agencies the data they need to manage their systems and customers more effectively.



Manage your system, in real time

Open ABT is hosted on the cloud and every component updates in real time. You will get rich system data as it is happening. If a validation happens on the west side, you’ll know about it downtown. If a rider has an issue on a bus, your customer service rep will know about it at their workstation.

Addresses problems of today and tomorrow

We’ve built the platform for today’s issues; ease of fare payment, supported by open and closed-loop payments and focused on mobile. As our technology changes, your agency changes, keeping pace with cities and towns across the globe. 

Get the full picture across the network

Open ABT's back-office gives access to real-time data to analyze the key indicators of the network's activities, usages and riders' habits. This allows transit agencies to get better insight to manage fares and run the network more efficiently.  It also helps networks to adapt and improve the services and offer a better experience.
