Evolis, France, June 2012. Million of MOBIB contactless passes will be delivered by public transportation operators STIB & SNCB in Belgium. The Evolis Zenius Expert card printer will personalize and instantly deliver such passes to commuters.
A MOBIB pass is the ultimate way to gain access to the entire public transportation network in Belgium (metro, tramways, trains and buses). Sales counters operated by STIB and SNCB print and issue instantly personalized MOBIB transit cards to commuters thanks to the Evolis Zenius Expert ID card printer.
With Zenius Expert, a MOBIB pass is personalized in a matter of seconds. First, the card holder’s picture and personal data are printed on the MOBIB card. Next, the integrated Crazy Writer Calypso module encodes all data related to the subscribed travel plan onto the contactless chip. This virtual embedded subscription can be renewed and updated easily online or at counters and vending machines available throughout the numerous stations. This contactless technology is compliant with Calypso2, a standard specific to public transportation systems that offers all public transport operators the guarantee of a proven level of security and interoperability.
To reliably deploy this new and extensive solution for the benefit and convenience of commuters, the transport operators have collaborated with several systems integrators to design cutting-edge IT solutions, along with GMP Belgium Bibliofilm, Evolis’ distributor for Belgium.
“The goals for traffic optimization, time saving and comfort have all been achieved with this new infrastructure." said Henry Everard, President, GMP Belgium Bibliofilm.
