Towards a unique contactless card for Denmark

Denmark aims at implementing a nation-wide
ticketing scheme “Travel Card” based on
contactless cards.

As of 2008, inhabitants
of Copenhagen and the rest of Eastern
Denmark will benefit from this new scheme.

A €200 million contract has been awarded
to the consortium “East West” led by Thales
and Accenture, covering the implementation
of the system on a user’s perspective and
the operation of the system.

Travellers will
have to validate each time they enter a train
station, metro station or a bus and each time
they leave.

Fare will be automatically calculated
and debited on the pre-paid card that will
allow negative balance for registered users.
