Estonia to develop single travel planning and ticketing platform

  • Date: 02/09/2024

“At present, passengers don’t have a convenient, unified system for planning their journeys using public transport and alternative modes. This is one of the reasons why people prefer to travel by car, because it is now easier,” Johann Peetre, head of mobility planning at the Estonian Transport Administration, said.

To address this issue, the government is supporting the creation of a prototype that will allow the private sector to create a functional environment where different transport service providers can conveniently sell their services.

The MaaS X-Road project aims to create a prototype service platform for journey enquiries and ticket purchases. This will create a standardised X-Road data exchange layer that can be used by MaaS operators in the private market. A good example of this is the Helsinki Public Transport System platform, which allows passengers to plan their journey and purchase all necessary tickets instantly.
