The objective of this report is to identify possibilities for a harmonisation of the many public transport fare systems in operation across Norway. All electronic tickets have an electronic purse (‘pay as you go’), which is interoperable and can be used by all electronic ticketing systems adhering to the national standard. We recommend that this electronic purse be established as a valid means of paying for all public transport services across the country. A precondition is that definitions of passenger categories, like age limits for “children” etc, be harmonised, and that a framework commercial agreement be established between the operators.
