Worldline joins Smart Transport as latest member

Worldline, the digital payment and transport data specialist, is one of the latest to join as a member of Smart Transport, representing the payment solutions sector exclusively.

Martin Howell, Worldline UK and Ireland director of transport markets, said joining as a member opens up discussion with peers in the transport industry that crossover with his company’s objectives.

This includes stability in the rail market and stimulating debate around Mobility as a Service (MaaS).

Smart Transport membership facilitates relationships between senior transport public policymakers/advisers and the private sector transport mobility sector through networking, collaboration and the sharing of information, opinion and analysis in a neutral and confidential environment.

Howell said: “If we work together as an industry, we can have a share of voice that is heard at the higher levels of Government, rather than just acting as Wordline alone.

“Despite coming from different businesses, we share a lot of common interests, and the Smart Transport Board affords us the chance to work together to advance those interests, because in so doing, the experience of transport will get better for everyone.”

Howell also said taking part in peer review articles, where expert Smart Transport members discuss published features and topics in further detail, also offers a unique way to prompt further discussion on key topics.

Howell will be speaking at this autumn’s Virtual Smart Transport Conference where he will present a session on the power of open transport data to deliver social good.

His speaker session will cover how developing the way passenger data is shared will be essential for progress with MaaS in the UK.

Worldline joins a growing list of Smart Transport members that now includes ABB, AECOM, Centrica, Daf Trucks, Enterprise, FedEx, Geotab, Liberty Charge, Macquarie Bank, Phil Jones Associates, Groupe Renault and Raleigh UK.
