Join us on a seamless digital journey embracing contactless EMV and ID-based transactions coupled with mobile journey planning and ticketing which revolutionise how passengers purchase and fulfil tickets to simplify their journeys.

Account Based Ticketing (ABT) and Open Payments provide the pathway to cloud-based solutions, with the potential to transform the relationship between bus, rail, tram, metro and ferry operators and their customers.

Public transport companies gain access to Account Based Ticketing architectures and secure Open Payments systems, while passengers benefit from the convenience of using online accounts with ‘best fare’ guarantees, and multiple payment options to meet their specific travel requirements.

A proven, reliable and robust solution capable of integration with on board systems, such as a driver consoles and validators, with intelligent system monitoring…supported by Flowbird’s service delivery teams.

Consumer demand for contactless experiences is undeniable. Sesame, Flowbird’s end-to-end Account-Based Ticketing solution for operators, cities and regions, unlocks the benefit of this system for seamless ‘tap and go’ urban mobility.
