NewsSmart CitiesTravel

Monaco presented their free mobile application Monapass, an all-in-one mobile application with journey planning and an integrated payment system for Monaco’s transportation. The app covers Cam (Compagnie des Autobus de Monaco) buses, MonaBike electric bikes and on-street parking.

Monaco City Hall and Cam developed the Monapass app in collaboration with urban mobility technology company Flowbird.

Besides the integration of cards, subscriptions and payment methods, Monapass provides real-time traffic information, bus timetables, bicycle availability and locations. Therefore, one can now easily and securely plan and pay for their trips via a single ticket, pass, bus or bicycle subscription. It also promotes green and active mobility, in support of Monaco’s objective of reducing light vehicle traffic by 20% by 2030.

Flowbird is also deploying Open Payments on Cam’s bus network, combining ticketing and electronic payments to enable passengers to use their bank card as a transport ticket. The system is compliant for payments with smart devices such as phones and watches. A tap on the validator with their contactless payment device when boarding permits passengers to travel and to benefit from optimum pricing, reports Smart Cities World.

The app is not reserved just for the citizens of Monaco but for everyone who whishes to use it, including tourists.
