Beginning in September, Slovenia will introduce a system of Integrated Public Passenger Transport (IPPT), which will enable users to uninterruptedly use different types of public transport without having to buy separate tickets.
A multilateral passenger transport ticket will integrate all means of transport, including the train and buses for urban and inter-urban travel. The first generation of the multilateral ticket will see reduced prices for pupils, students, and adult-learners.
The process of creating the multiuse ticket was threefold: the project required technological, organizational, and management systems be implemented in order to efficiently roll out the product. The IPPT system runs digitally with automated fare collection and electronically managed data.
Integrated public passenger transport offers users improved accessibility and effectiveness of public means of transport throughout urban areas. Tickets and schedules are available online.
