What is biometric ticketing?

Biometric ticketing allows people to use their own biometric characteristics to identify themselves and paper tickets or digital tickets are no longer needed. The biometric identification methods contain face recognition, iris, fingerprint, vein patterns, voice, etc. In terms of ticketing scenarios, the face recognition method is the most common.

l Biometric ticketing on bus

Face payment is getting more popular. In addition to paying their fares using face payment, the biometrics of face recognition can be used to identify the carrier of a benefit. For example, some public transport operators provide free access for special groups like the elderly and children. By conducting face identification for passengers, the bus fleet operators can make sure the right group enjoys welfare.

l Biometric ticketing for railway stations

The railway stations including metro stations also began to apply biometric ticketing. The most common biometric method is fingerprint and face recognition. Taking the biometric ticketing system at Moscow Metro as an example, the Moscow Metro rolled out biometric ticketing across its entire network in 2021. After passengers upload their photos on Face Pay APP, they can easily pay for their fares at metro turnstiles. The biometric ticketing system provides more convenience for both passengers and metro operators.

l Biometric ticketing for events

The large events require lots of labor to verify tickets and the identities of attendees, which is costly. The biometric technology allows attendees to verify their tickets using their bodies without the need to carry paper tickets or electronic tickets. What they need to do is to identify their faces at the entrance, which is effortless and efficient. What’s more, attendees don’t have to worry about losing the printed tickets or their devices run out of power.

Biometric ticketing is thought to be a ticketing way that combines convenience and security and is thought to lead ticketing in the future.

Benefits of biometric ticketing

1. Enhanced security. Biometric ticketing has a higher accuracy and efficiency than manual ticketing, which avoids ticket scams to the maximum. The situation of using forged barcodes and real logos to sell tickets to more than 1 person can be effectively avoided. The ticketing method utilizing biometric verification is much more accurate and more efficient.

2. More convenient. The passengers don’t have to carry any physical things, either printed tickets or electronic devices. The biometric technology can automate the ticketing process and make it streamlined. Attendees can spend less time in queuing in the long line.

3. Environmentally friendly and cost-saving. Biometric ticketing can eliminate the need for printed tickets, transport cards, tokens, etc., which saves both companies and users money. This advanced ticketing method helps reduce paper consumption and urban waste production.
