Dutch mobile operators, Vodafone Netherlands and KPN have partnered with Dutch public transport card issuer, Translink to launch a nationwide m-ticketing service pilot. 

Bart Hofker, director, consumer business unit at Vodafone Netherlands, wrote in a blog post, “In the coming months, 200 people will be testing if this is as convenient as we thought it was when developing the test environment over the last few months. Such a field test will give us valuable user feedback with which we can refine and finalise the product before its mass market introduction after a successful pilot". 

Vodafone customers in the pilot will use both the Vodafone Wallet and a dedicated Smart-OV app on NFC-enabled smartphones for making payments while commuting. Users will also be able to receive notifications as they touch in and out of their transport terminals and have access to various information including card balance and transaction history.
