The idea of this project is to create a new type of ticket whose prize shall be based on the distance travelled by people. The payment of the ticket will be done with mobile application.
The proposed project intends to develop a friendly and favorable type of ticket. The passengers are able to pay the fare according to the distance covered by the means of transport. This can be done through a combination of NFC system and a mobile application. For example, the passenger validates his entry to the bus by scanning the mobile phone on the special machine. Respectively the passenger validates his exit and pays only for the distance travelled. The real benefit for the users is that such a type of ticket provides prompt, fair and easy payment while at the same time are produced and stored real time data for consideration. The above project is depicted to the following gif.
