1. The ticket system today

Everywhere in our lives we find calibrated meters for consumption or weight to get an accurate account. That is what we want. In shops, prices are also shown with comparative values (e.g. EUR per kg), if not, there are penalties. Furthermore, for electricity and gas consumption, for utility costs and rent. Everywhere we compare prices with values. Lump-sum settlements are not required.

Would we accept a flat rate for electricity, for example, as we do for television, streaming services, etc.? Certainly not.

Only in public transport do we work with a multitude of flat-rate prices according to the watering-can principle, no matter what service we buy.


2. How is it with the ticket or the ticket when we all talk about 5G and demand it

It's annoying when you want to use public transport and don't have a ticket. There's the internet, can you buy one there? Yes, but do I have everything then? How far does the ticket go?

Just ask yourself a few questions:

where do I get my ticket from,

are there limits to the transport companies that sell their own tickets,

are there offers,

if it works across Europe across all borders,

across all transport companies,

via all necessary means of transport,

with the connections,

where is my connection stop?

Sure, for those who have always been using public transport, no problem, they can find everything and get new information quickly. But everyone else?

What is the time we live in today, what is the standard in logistics, at car manufacturers etc. doesn't everything run automatically?

We only stop at the good old ticket, but something works.

 

The egotism and power of each haulier remains a problem for the solution.

 

A help for more public transport use and more customer friendliness, but to love the environment is on the way.

A European Ticket Agency could be set up, or one for each country, which would then work together, e.g. a Federal Ticket Agency, which works in a similar way to the Federal Network Agency.

Approx. 90 % are described, the other 10 % are very specific and must be solved accordingly.

Concept for a European ticket system
If we look at public transport in Europe, it consists of thousands of small, very different islands. Everywhere there are different rules and solutions. There is hardly anyone who knows the rules in their neighbourhood. In the area of national borders, there are rarely cross-border solutions. It is an advantage that you can save individual tickets on your mobile phone. But not everyone has a mobile phone and how many APPs are needed across Europe, thousands? What about transporting children, dogs, bicycles, wheelchairs, etc.? You have to do a lot of searching with each provider. A standardised, simple and social solution is presented here.
