Fastest ticket purchase for public transport

Digital tickets with just one click – with or without an app

Either the public transport app can be used to buy tickets or, alternatively and even faster, the Fast Lane Ticketing system.
Here, the ticket purchase is initiated via a QR code that is attached to the bus stop or the machine, for example.
In both cases, the purchase is made with just one click on the mobile phone bill and the ticket is provided directly on the mobile phone and can be used to start your journey.

Fast payment by mobile phone bill

The ticket price is paid via the mobile phone bill with just one click. The ticket purchase is completed in just a few seconds and is billed to the user’s mobile phone bill or prepaid credit.

The ticket purchase can be initiated either directly from the public transport app or via the Fast Lane Ticket called up via a QR code.
The mobile phone number, i.e. the means of payment, is determined automatically and the purchase is made with a simple confirmation, a simple process for a successful purchase.

For these mobile sales channels, DIMOCO Carrier Billing enables fast and convenient payment tailored to your passenger via the mobile phone bill.

Alternative to credit card and PayPal

In 2020, over 147 million mobile phone connections were registered in Germany, which means that the payment method via the mobile phone bill covers almost 100 percent of customers.

With the payment method via the mobile phone bill, you can reach more potential customers than any other payment method.

Fast payment through “simply pay by mobile phone bill”

The ticket price is paid via the mobile phone bill with just one click.
The ticket purchase is completed in just a few seconds and is billed to the user’s mobile phone bill or prepaid credit. The ticket purchase can be initiated either directly from the public transport app or via the Fast Lane Ticket called up via a QR code.

Carrier Billing is in Germany under “ Zahl einfach per Handyrechnung”, a joint initiative of the German mobile network operators Telefónica Deutschland, Telekom, mobilcom-debitel and Vodafone, in Austria under “Zahl einfach per Handyrechnung”, as a joint initiative of the Austrian mobile network operators A1, Drei and Magenta.

Both solutions allow the ticket to be paid for with just one click.
The mobile number is used to clearly identify the passenger and to bill the ticket, without any registration or additional input of additional data.
More than 70 percent of all tickets sold in local public transport are single tickets, short-distance tickets and day tickets. These tickets can usually be obtained via an app, which, however, does not reach all passengers.

Especially for occasional drivers who do not want to download and use an app to buy tickets quickly, the Fast Lane Ticket via QR code initiation is particularly convenient and fast.

What do our public transport partners say?

“Paying by mobile phone bill has emerged as the primary means of payment for in-app ticket sales over the past few years and is now the most popular payment option for occasional drivers,” says Anja Wenmakers, Managing Director of SWB Bus und Bahn and SWB Mobil in Bonn .

“The mobile payment method has been in use in Leipzig for years and is an enrichment in the mix of payment methods , as it offers customers an uncomplicated way of making a purchase and also makes those customers accessible to us who, for example, would not otherwise be able to purchase tickets due to lack of an account. In general, app sales and thus cashless payments are growth drivers with steadily increasing importance , ”says Sandy Brachmann, Head of Marketing at Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe (LVB) GmbH .
