Be-Mobile launches electronic ticket for De Lijn

With the m-ticket, an electronic ticket, Be-Mobile wants to make cash-free purchases of public transport tickets easier. This is a first for the Belgian public transport sector.

With the app, Be-Mobile, who is specialized in Mobility-as-a-Service applications, enables people to pay for different means of transport without any worries. Besides bus or tram journeys, you can also pay for a parking space and for charging an electric car. In the long run the app will also become an attractive proposition for companies wanting to offer their employees a mobility budget instead of a company car.

Users of the 4411 app can pay via their telecom bill, by credit card or bank transfer. The 4411 app generates only for parking one million SMS and parking tickets per month.

The 4411 m-ticket is protected against fraud in various ways. Since the m-ticket’s colors change continuously during its validity period, it is impossible to use a screenshot as a ticket.

The success of De Lijn’s SMS ticket is due to its ease of use and lower price compared with tickets purchased from the driver. Since the introduction of the SMS ticket, sales of individual tickets sold by bus drivers has more than halved. This has a positive impact on punctuality.

Next to a large press coverage, Roger Kesteloot (CEO, De Lijn) and Stéphane Jacobs (Director Business Unit Mobility Payment, Be-Mobile) have been interviewed by RTV
