Slovenian Railways to buy vending machines for selling tickets on internal routes

Slovenian Railways  (SŽ) does not have an online or mobile ticketing solution, and it allows via its online portal only the extension of validity of monthly and yearly tickets (allowed paying using credit cards)
SŽ carried in the past a pilot project on including ticketing vending machines in their ticketing strategy-solution. In 2017 plans to buy vending machines for selling tickets on internal routes.
In October 2016,  SŽ launched an open international tender for new ticketing solution. This year SŽ plans to implement mobile and internet ticketing solution, an app for Android and IOS OS,  and will also sell  tickets on the company portal. This “new” app will be authorized to verify and validate the major part of EU international railway ticket (in January we started using mobile OBB app (project UIC PRISM).
Last year, SŽ launched the Future train  project, preparing the strategy and all need documentation to implement WIFI solution  on-board. In march 2017 the first train will we upgraded with WIFI solution (hardware, program components). Passengers using WIFI portal (landing page, information about train delay) will be able to access internet pages in both online or offline mode.
SŽ has in plan plan to implement Wi-Fi solution on all their trains and stations in the next three years.
In parallel with the WIFI project,   is working on a complete solution for railway infotainment (train and station), some part of them (pilot mode) will we mounted and put to work already on March 2017. Passengers will be able to validate tickets (IJPP type of cards), will be informed about delays and other information about trains, and will also be allowed to subscribe to a service (using WiFi portal ) to easily organise their travel.
