I’ve been invited to participate in a conference organized by the association québécoise du transport et des routes (AQTR), called « La mobilité urbaine à l’heure du paiement électronique ». This non-profit works in collaboration with the Ministère des transports du Québec. The conference is geared towards transportation planners, management, consultants, and designers in the public and private sectors. I’ve been invited to discuss how electronic payment could help improve mobility for transit users…. apparently I’m meant to speak right before the OPUS marketing team. Gulp.
Being just one individual transit user – and seasonal one at that – I’d like to gather some comments from Spacing contributors and readers. Please share any experiences that have marked you, recommendations, examples of best practices, or obstacles with regareds to electronic payment in our public transit system in the comments below. The comments section will be open for the next 3 weeks.
The AQTR’s mandate is province-wide and extends beyond public transit, so think big!
