The Baku Transport Agency took part in the Transport Ticketing Global 2020 exhibition and conference dedicated to global innovations in the field of transport and the ticket system 2020. The main goal of the twelfth event is to make the services available in the ever-changing public transport and passenger transportation system more perfect. This is the first participation of our country in this important event.

The delegation led by the Chairman of the Board of the Baku Transport Agency Vusal Kerimli got acquainted with the most modern ticket and payment systems used in public transport in developed cities of the world. The main purpose of the event is to establish contacts with authoritative authorities around the world and apply experience for the development of public transport and passenger transportation systems in Baku.

The development of the transport sector, the provision of convenient, safe and affordable transport services for citizens, the formation of a high-level transport system in the city are among the priorities of the Baku Transport Agency. In our capital, the expansion of the coverage of non-cash passenger payment systems continues. The transition to this system is important in terms of transparency of payments and revenues. The transition to cashless payments also allows for an accurate analysis of passenger traffic and more accurate calculations. This, in turn, will help to better meet the demand of passengers in the transport sector with the right economic justification.

The exhibition and conference "Global Innovation Payment System 2020" is an affordable platform in terms of innovative ways of collecting fees for public transport, creating information systems for passengers and smart city transport.

This year's agenda included a discussion on achieving mobility principles through the use of more innovative methods in public transport and defining the role of appropriate policies in developed cities. In addition, the agenda included such topical issues as the study of opportunities for sustainable urban development, as well as determining the interest of the population in innovation.

The event was attended by senior government officials from sixty-five countries, including the United Kingdom, Sweden, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Qatar and Argentina.
