Tariff Studies

Pricing opens the door for passengers to the network

Tariff and ticketing studies deal with the development and analysis of improved[NM8] integrated fare and ticketing structures, for all type of users (young, elederly, commuters, tourists, visitors, etc.).
Over 20 years, TTK has developed an extensive experience of such studies, including notably know-how transfer from Germany about zonal systems and integrated fares (one ticket for all modes of transport). 

Our skills also include data analysis, fares review and modeling of the various impacts (on revenue, on customers numbers) of fares changes. Our experience in France also enables us to take on board the various customers profile and disadvantage people’s needs.
