Mobile ticketing in Luxembourg - eos.uptrade launches ticketing solution in CFL mobile app
Luxembourg: In early 2018, the ticketing service of Luxembourg’s national railway company CFL went live with the update of its timetable information app “CFL mobile”. In only five months, eos.uptrade’s complete mobile shop was implemented and fully integrated into the existing app. In this regard, CFL benefited from the use of eos.uptrade’s ticketing solution TICKeos and from the excellent cooperation between eos.uptrade and HaCon, who also developed the timetable information app “CFL mobile”.
“We are very proud of our product. It’s an app that not only looks good, but is highly functional too” said Monique Buschmann, Head of Passenger Department. She added: “I would like to thank eos.uptrade for their excellent cooperation, support and responsiveness.”
The mobile shop is available in German, English and French. The mobile shop in the “CFL mobile” app now offers the most comprehensive product range in Luxembourg. In addition to short-term and day tickets (valid in the entire service area) that can also be purchased as multi-trip tickets (so-called carnets/ticket books) as well as monthly and group tickets, there are also cross-border day tickets for return trips on the CFL line network. This way, passengers can travel from every station in Luxembourg to the German city of Trier and back. They can now also use the app to purchase 1st class tickets for CFL trains.
In the second stage of the project, it is planned that all purchased tickets can also be displayed in Apple Wallet.
Thanks to the integration of the new payment service provider SIX Payment, eos.uptrade now offers its customers a total of seven different interfaces to payment service providers with the most popular payment methods, also including LogPay, WireCard, PayUnity, PayPal, DataTrans and MobilePay. By doing so, eos.uptrade shows once again that its solutions are extremely modular when it comes to integrating a wide range of interface partners.
CFL is Luxembourg’s national railway company. Its main activity is providing passenger rail transport in Luxembourg. CFL is eos.uptrade’s second customer outside the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).
