Since October 10th, with the help of the AOTU-A (Organizing Authority of Urban Transport of Algiers) and in collaboration with the Company of the metro of Algiers (EMA) a single and only title of transport without contact allows to public transport users in Algiers to use both metro and tramway.
Some news for Algiers metro and tram
For one year, Ixxi worked on setting up the interoperability of the non-contact ticket in close collaboration with the two industrial suppliers of the subway and tramway ticketing systems in Algiers.
The interoperability of the Algiers metro and tramway is fully in line with the plans of the Algerian authorities to modernize the transport networks in Algeria in order to gradually reduce congestion in the city's road traffic. Now magnetic tickets and contactless cards can be used on metro and tramway equipment.
Rencontres Nationales du Transport Public
Ixxi was present at the 26th Rencontres Nationales du Transport Public in Marseille, which brought together elected officials, members of local authorities...
For three days, Ixxi had the pleasure of participating in this unmissable event, within the stand of the RATP group. Ixxi introduced Bi-Mo, its mobile ticketing solution. Developed by its teams, Bi-Mo is the solution to buy, validate and control a ticket via a Smartphone. Travelers can buy their dematerialized tickets at any time from their telephone, validate them by boarding and generate a secure and dynamic QR code in case of control.
Visitors were also able to discover Urban Flows, a tool to help fighting against fraud, created to accompany the Organizing Authorities of Transport in their anti-fraud strategy. The passenger data of a network are collected via various sources (counting sensors, cameras, on-board validators) and analyzed in order to better identify zones and schedules of fraud. These data prove to be crucial in strengthening the fight against transit fraud and to fine-tune transport network control strategies.
Ixxi releases its 2016 Annual Report
Ixxi has experienced a marked acceleration in its development during the last twelve months, which have been marked by great successes.
These achievements include the 16% increase in consolidated revenue and the strong increase of the number of employees (75 in 2014, 115 in 2015 and 200 in 2016). The year 2017 was also marked by innovation, which remains, of course, one of our priorities. We focus primarily on the new services that can be provided through "Big Data" and the dematerialisation of tickets in the field of ticketing. At the level of passenger information, we work on the indoor/outdoor guidance of travelers through virtual reality or augmented reality. Finally, we have launched a major reflection on the fleet management of the future. We are engaged in an innovative software development program on ticketing products, passenger information and an operating aid system of more than 6 million euros.
Ticketing system for the Abidjan lagoon shuttle
The international expansion of Ixxi is accelerating with a second contract in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivoiry Coast. Following a first assistance mission to optimize the ticketing operation of its new transport service, Citrans has entrusted Ixxi with the complete installation of the ticketing system for its lagoon shuttles.
Citrans is a new private lagoon transport company, created and managed by Zoumana Bakayoko, who will soon operate a fleet of several bus-buses in Abidjan. Ixxi will be responsible for implementing the entire future lagoon transport ticketing system. With this new contract, Ixxi is positioned in this region, where the company intends to continue its development. Abidjan, considered the cultural crossroads of western Africa, is experiencing strong growth characterized by major industrialization and urbanization. The Ivorian government, which has the will to promote alternative means of transport in order to reduce urban congestion in the city, relies in particular on the development of lagoon transport.
