Genova Contactless. A new era for smart urban travel in Genoa in collaboration with VISA

Thursday, 24 February 2022 11:23

Genova Contactless is a new smart urban travel solution for Genoa in collaboration with VISA. The ILA or "instant lane access" project by AMT and Visa makes it possible to access transport services through contactless payment. All travellers have to do is touch their debit, credit, prepaid or contactless cards, by Visa and other authorized operators, to the smart ILA totems and validators around the Ligurian city.

Available at ten stops on Genoa’s urban network 

In this first phase, ten stops of the Genoese urban network will be equipped with the new ILA smart totems and smart validators on board buses that provide connections with the airport, Volabus and Airlink.

For individuals and groups up to four

The experiment is among the most flexible and client-oriented in Italy, meaning consumers can access public transport services without having to purchase a physical ticket. And they can benefit from the best offers with the use of a single payment card for up to four people. For the first time in Italy, the system offers users the possibility of accessing rates dedicated to groups, such as the 24-hour ticket for 4 people or the rate dedicated to the Volabus for 3 people.

The service will be extended to other locations

This innovative solution improves the travel experience, above all facilitating access to services for tourists who can use the public transport network managed by AMT to discover the city. The experiment, for now focused on areas in the city of Genoa, will serve to collect ideas and data for its possible expansion to other locations.

The project is presented to Portofino

The experiment involves a total of 45 totems and smart ILA validators being gradually rolled out. Another 20 smart totems will be positioned on the Genoese urban network by the summer. In the next few days, the ILA experiment will be presented in Portofino, a strategic location chosen as it is a highlight on any tourist’s visit to the Liguria region.
