The Alliance SwissPass (formerly ch-direct) is a Swiss national tariff organisation representing the interests of roughly 250 public transport companies.
With services to both travelers and the public transport industry, they are committed to further development of public transport and a customer-oriented progress in the Swiss tariff system and ticketing. The Alliance SwissPass offers products such as the general or half-fare ticket and is present throughout Switzerland. The Alliance is also responsible for the revenue and cost distribution of all participating transport companies.
The commission IT-systems, affiliated with the Alliance SwissPass, is involved in developing existing and future IT systems in respect with sales and distribution in Swiss public transport. It sets standards in the field of data exchange and ensures optimal functioning of interfaces, so that tickets can be managed centrally but sold decentrally.
The interoperability between IT systems and the technical standards of the IT architecture are becoming more and more important. The Alliance SwissPass’s expectation on joining ITxPT is the exchange of knowledge in respect of the development of technical standards for interfaces in sales and distribution.
