Following a complex tendering procedure with strict qualification requirements AUSTRIACARD successfully managed to requalify as a supplier of choice for VVM De Lijn, one of Belgium’s largest public transport operators. AUSTRIACARD has been producing and personalizing DeLijn’s multifunctional MOBIB-card since mid-2016.
The MOBIB-card is a sophisticated smart card product providing users not only easy access to public transport operators, but also to several extended mobility-related services, such as car- or bike sharing. The new generation of this dual-interface card offers significant enhancements in terms of sustainability and performance:
- Τhe cardbody of the new public transport card is made of long-life PVC/PET composite which was specially designed for public transport applications and received top results from a renowned German test lab (FORGA).
- Particularly reliable inductive coupling technology is used, providing the new MOBIB-card a higher robustness and rapid transaction times. This technology has become a proven standard in millions of EMV-cards and has finally been adapted for secure transport applications,
- A full-color personalization is applied which supplements the total look and feel of the new card, also including the cardholder’s photograph.
AUSTRIACARD is proud to take an active part in continuously refining its customer products by creating additional value and a seamless user experience, especially with regard to convergent card products like the MOBIB-card.
