In-house public transport ticketing

Eco-friendly travel from headquarters to remote locations

On behalf of F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG we developed the public transport ticket system "Roche Mobility". The solution is free of charge for their employees and replaces the company's own bus service. Employees can now obtain a digital public transport ticket on their intranet in the Mobility Web Shop.

To date, Roche has provided its employees with their own shuttle service for travel between individual company locations in Basel. As part of ongoing site development, they replaced this at the end of March 2018 with an eco-friendly solution that is still free of charge for employees. The "Roche Mobility" public transport ticket system developed by us makes this possible.

The employee chooses the travel route between the locations within the city of Basel in the web shop. The web shop then obtains a code from the promotion toolbox via a web service interface and makes it available to the employee as a QR code. The employee scans the QR code with the TNW Tickets App. The digital public transport ticket is now ready in the app and only needs to be validated before the start of the journey, the same as with the popular multi-trip card.

Individual solution - commercially attractive and quickly implemented

We built the web shop as an individual solution for Roche. It is based on the Promotion Toolbox, an existing component of the Wemlin Suite. With the Wemlin Suite we offer a comprehensive range of products for public transport, such as the timetable and tickets app, departures for display boards or the public transport database Wemlin HUB.

Julian Hennig, Project Manager Mobility at F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG, comments on the public transport ticket system: "The ticket system is an excellent solution for making the very well-developed public transport system in Basel available to our employees. The ease of use and the paperless tickets are very popular with us!"
