Edinburgh trams use QR codes to validate mobile tickets before boarding


The city of Edinburgh’s new tram service is using QR codes placed at tram stops to validate passengers’ mobile tickets before they board.

Passengers of Edinburgh Trams can use an app, developed by Corethree, to select, purchase and download Flash Pass mobile tickets to their mobile device. Payment can be made using a debit/credit card or the Barclays Pingit mobile payment service.

Before boarding a tram, they then activate their mobile ticket by scanning a QR code placed at each tram stop. An animated digital watermark is then displayed on their mobile ticket to prove that it has been validated.
