Time for open payments across the city
bpcbillet is now O-CITY. We are glad to introduce BPC’s new brand dedicated to make cities more open. Founded in 2018 and adopted by over 100 cities worldwide, O-CITY is an innovative automated fare collection platform dedicated to government, city and transport operators to digitalise the entire payment experience across public transport and city main attractions.
O-CITY stands for Open City. It was born from the vision of digitalising micropayments across the city as a key driver for a cashless economy and citizen’s well-being. With O-CITY, government, public transport operators and merchants can deliver a frictionless payment experience at every touch point leveraging smart, digital and open technologies, be it for tollgate, bus, train, subway, parking facility, bike rental or entertainment area.
O-CITY is a powerful automated fare collection platform (AFC) that leverages our payment expertise to enable the widest payment acceptance possible for customers. The platform uses innovative EMV and open-loop technology to offer payment choice from bank card, smart ID card, QR and barcodes, contactless NFC devices such as wearable and e-wallet.
Business users have the flexibility to centralise their entire payment operations without any vendor dependency, making it easy to update city attractions and routes, complex fare calculations, discounts and subsidies while reaping the benefits of real-time insights for optimum city management.
