Snowball Technology Enables Transit Cards on iPhone and Apple Watch in Six Major Chinese Cities

Snowball Technology has launched NFC-based mobile ticketing with Apple Wallet, allowing passengers in Suzhou, Xiamen, Tianjin, Changsha, Shijiazhuang and Xi’an to access public transport with just a tap of their iPhone or Apple Watch. The rollout was successfully executed in each of the aforementioned Chinese cities over a period of just three months.

Snowball Technology and RTA Bring Mobile Ticketing to Dubai’s Ultra-modern Public Transportation System

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority worked with Snowball Technology to launch Nol Pay. Public transport passengers in the UAE city now have quick and easy access to the metro, bus, water bus and tram with an NFC and eSE-based digital version of the Nol Card.

“Providing transit services to the world is a huge task. Snowball’s contribution to it is OnBoard™, a platform that gives public transit agencies a fast and secure solution for mobile ticketing.”

CEO/ Founder

Just one (yet important) facet of sustainable urban planning is providing city dwellers with convenient, widespread access to public transportation.

And just one yet important aspect of mobility planning is mobile ticketing, which can increase public transport ridership, while saving costs for public transport agencies.

By the year 2030, over a quarter of the world’s population will be living in cities with one million or more people. If we can make access to transit as easy as possible, we can reduce carbon emissions, minimise time wasted in traffic and prevent overcrowding in city centers.

The time is now to optimize public transport, and Snowball is there to help make it happen.
