A live test run of the project began on January 14, 2020. Staff members of the city of Osnabrück in north-western Germany are testing the new system in a productive setting. Check-in/Be-out (CiBo) is an innovative, simple and fast form of ticket purchasing that enables passengers to travel for the best possible price – the system is fully automated and does not require the user to have an in-depth knowledge of fares.

Check-in/Be-out makes using public transport easier than ever before

With the innovative ticketing system, public transport becomes easier and passenger comfort increases. Buying a ticket before the start of a journey is no longer necessary. Passengers simply check into the bus with a swipe in the local public transport app VOSpilot. As soon as they leave the bus, the CiBo system automatically checks them out. The best possible ticket price is then calculated.
