The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how two United Kingdom (UK) Local Authorities (Hertfordshire and Northamptonshire), the two Universities of Hertfordshire and Northampton and a public transport provider (UNO) have worked in partnership to develop a smart scan-on m-ticketing solution, which integrates into a wider ‘smart city’ solution delivering social good through connected value propositions. Based on the initial success of a Hertfordshire pilot, a specific objective of this work is to establish smart integrated multi-operator/modal solutions. This pilot is subsequently being collaboratively expanded upon, through the UK Department for Transport funded ‘Network Northamptonshire Total Transport’ initiative, a transformative project to improve connectivity, integration and accessibility for rural transport networks. This forms part of the recently signed ‘England’s Economic Heartland’ tri-county alliance agreement, which aims to work collaboratively across three local authority regions (Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire), consolidating £3bn of spending. This provides a further future platform for innovative transport solutions being rolled out across wider geographical areas.
