Brescia, 19 December 2018
With FS Italiane Group’s integrated mobility app, nugo, it is now possible to purchase tickets for the urban transport service managed by the Brescia Mobilità Group.
In its initial phase, the nugo digital platform means single bus and metro tickets for Zone 1, Zone 2 and Zone 1+2 can be purchased. No surcharge will apply to tickets acquired through nugo.
“An increasing number of partners are joining nugo,” confirmed Alessandro La Rocca, nugo's General Manager. “We are proud of this new collaboration and of becoming operational in an important province like Brescia. Being well organised and technically innovative, this app perfectly integrates with the local Brescia Mobilità public transport system. nugo is an important step in modernising the digital process of searching for and purchasing tickets.”
“FS Italiane proposed joining nugo, which was swiftly achieved”, declared Carlo Scarpa, President of Brescia Mobilità. “This represents an ambitious collaboration project between public transport operators to render the user experience simpler and more immediate. Being part of this platform will undoubtedly be good for our Group, introducing our services to the many passengers, visitors and tourists coming to Brescia by train. People will be able to complete a single and integrated transaction for all tickets needed to reach their final destination.
Via nugo, you can easily purchase tickets using your smartphone, pay quickly and safely via credit card or using other innovative systems such as Amazon Pay, PayPal, Satispay, Apple Pay or via a MyBank transfer. Checks are carried out through a unique code via which the Brescia Mobilità Group ticket inspectors can verify the ticket’s validity. Hence, no more paper tickets to carry about and validate but rather a virtual ticket to be conveniently saved in the passenger’s electronic device.
In the coming months, tickets valid for other Brescia Mobilità Group services will also be available for purchase. The nugo app will be gradually integrated with all information on public transport, timetables and any route changes or deviations in Brescia. In addition, other services offered by the Brescia Mobilità Group throughout the city can also be viewed and consulted, namely car sharing, bike sharing and parking.
Launched in June 2018 by the FS Italiane Group, nugo allows you to purchase travel solutions integrating various modes of transport including by: train, aeroplane, bus, metro, ferry and even car and bike sharing.
The app is simple and intuitive: upon selecting the point of departure and destination, nugo lists all possible solutions to reach journey’s end, combining various means of transport and indicating the duration of the trip and ticket price for each. Once you have chosen the means or the combination of transit methods proposed, you can buy all your tickets in just one click, making it much quicker and more practical to arrange your trips. Through filters and preferences, it is also possible to customise the trip, ensuring the itineraries best suit the needs of each person.
The free app is available and downloadable from Google Play and App Store.
