Unlimited European ticket


What about the ticket or the ticket when we are all talking about 5G and demanding 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.

Here is a technical concept that is already partially in operation.

Unlimited European ticket


The individual, limitless digital ticket, customer-friendly, simple, services-oriented, barrier-free.


The person is the customer and is in the foreground,

the means of transport and their providers are the service providers and service providers.

Egoist and king are the customers, not the providers of transport or the countries

1. Goal description:


The unlimited European individual ticket enables customers to use public transport more easily and more easily. The focus is on people and the transport companies are the service providers and provide the service.


All customers should be able to move freely across Europe with public transport, completely independent of transport companies. The existing electronic devices such as cell phones, watches and the like are used as tickets. After a simple and short setup with the personal data, the customer is active in the system. A journey can begin sporadically immediately, or it can be planned at short notice, as in the case of a car navigation system with voice control.

Everyone has the right to use the system and the corresponding socially just solutions are provided.



1.1 The planned trip


a. The destination is entered or said on the mobile phone. The start is the location. Several routes are now proposed, one of which is selected by the customer. Now all means of transport on the selected route are reserved, listed and monitored for the corresponding time. During the journey, the customer is guided to the destination according to a navigation system, including the exact details of the stops, parking spaces, etc. of the respective means of transport. The means of transport used are saved for billing purposes,


b. The type or reason for the trip is not decisive, but can be entered. It can be the daily trip to work or school, as well as sightseeing tours, shopping trips, business trips or trips to hobbies, etc.



1.2 Sporadic drive, so just drive off without entering a destination


a. The customer goes to the nearest means of transport, gets on or unlocks it, for bicycles, vehicles, etc.,

b. Every mode of transport used is registered accordingly. The end of the journey is when no more vehicle is used,

c. The system is basically on standby, similar to the Corona APP.

a. The European mobile phone ticket is commissioned by the EU,

b. The new ticket is an APP on the mobile phone or similar devices such as clocks etc. and is valid throughout Europe,

c. The APP is completely barrier-free with voice control and earphones,

d. The APP can at least nnn different languages, and at least 12 fonts, is set up under personal settings,

e. A detailed navigation system is integrated and shows exactly the vehicles and the entrances, even for the visually        impaired, e.g. track numbers at train stations, bus stops at bus stations, parking spaces for sharing vehicles,

f. All cell phones from around 2015 can be used,

g. In operation, no operation is required when getting in and out, there is an automatic detection when using the            means of transport, the mobile phone stays in the pocket,

h. Installation, download and all updates are free of charge for the customer, the required storage space must not           lead to the purchase of a new mobile phone,

i. The APP can integrate new countries while maintaining the existing technical rules and standards outside of the          EU,

j. All transport providers join this central system and supply all the relevant data, for which the central system pays       for the services provided in accordance with the service contract.

k. The system is always on standby,



3. System hierarchy


a. There is a central system that stores all personal customer data within the supervision of the EU.

b. The subordinate systems of the transport providers receive anonymized customer data in order to guarantee               functionality,

c. The central system manages all customer bills and payments and pays all transport providers based on the                   anonymized customer usage data transmitted.

d. Credits from the transport providers are forwarded to the relevant customers via the central system.



4. Technical functions


a. The APP works even when the mobile phone is switched off or the battery is empty,

b. The APP is easy to use when setting up with personal data that does not or only rarely changes,

c. The APP is easy to use when entering a destination, even with voice input,

d. The APP offers different routes to the destination, with total fares, times and all vehicles and number of changes         regardless of the provider, the customer selects a route, then all means of transport are provided, reserved and         continuously monitored, problems are currently reported, alarm function / Attention function, in the event of               malfunctions,

e. The APP can be easily and quickly adapted when taking bicycles, strollers, shopping, etc., in order to offer                       appropriate means of transport,

f. The APP can easily organize group trips, all group cell phones receive the same information including the locations       of the group participants in the NAVI, e.g. family group,

g. The APP includes guidance of the navigation in language and image and is displayed in the local language,                     national script e.g. Greece.

b. The APP applies to all public transport in Europe including all on-demand vehicles and all sharing vehicles,                     bicycles, scooters, etc. (Every provider can participate and can be integrated into the APP, including watercraft or         aircraft),

c. The APP can easily integrate and accommodate new providers of transport within the standards,

d. The APP can integrate innovations, coordination must be obtained for this, a rejection must be specifically                     justified, improvements for the customer must be prioritized,

b. Underage customers are represented by the legal representative, here special data protection measures must be       planned, control functions of the legal representative must be implemented in accordance with the legal                       requirements of the EU and, if necessary, restricted, this also applies to non-EU countries,

c. The travel costs are the same for everyone, special features and discounts are credited separately by the                      respective transport company used.
