Littlepay innovates with multi-operator capping in Brighton, UK

Littlepay, in partnership with Ticketer, brings multi-operator capping to Brighton & Hove and Metrobus Services

“The future possibilities of multi-operator capping are exciting. This functionality opens the door to collaborative ticketing schemes across operators and transit modes .”

Amin Shayan, CEO, Littlepay

We’re pleased to announce the first deployment of an exciting new functionality: multi-operator capping.

Today, this is being deployed for the first time in Brighton, UK. Working with The Go-Ahead Group, we have introduced tap on/tap off payments to Metrobus and Brighton & Hove buses, with a daily cap on fares across the two services.

Improves passenger experience

Littlepay’s multi-operator capping technology allows passengers to travel with both bus companies, paying contactless by tapping a reader with their bank card, smartphone, or enabled device as they board and exit.

Their journeys are recorded and a daily cap applied to ensure they pay the best price for travel in the 24-hours after they first ‘tap on’. The seamless payment experience will reduce boarding times, while the fare cap will bring cost efficiencies.

Simplifies fare structures

Working closely with its established hardware partner Ticketer, this deployment is the first time that Littlepay has introduced a second reader to vehicles for ‘tapping off’.

Littlepay CEO, Amin Shayan says:

“We’re excited to go live with multi-operator capping in Brighton. Passengers increasingly want to travel without having to analyse complex fare structures. We hope Brighton & Hove and Metrobus customers will enjoy the simplicity of paying contactless across two services, while always paying the best fare.”
