The digital transformation of Canberra’s transport sector is moving forward following NEC’s new partnership with the ACT Government to provide a next generation ticketing solution.
The ACT Next Generation Ticketing System will use NEC’s Smart Mobility Platform to provide smart ticketing, operational intelligence, safety, security, and customer experience services.
Richard Duggan, General Manager, Critical Infrastructure, Smart Transport & IoT said that NEC is proud to be working with the ACT Government to develop Canberra’s technology landscape.
“NEC has been a trusted partner for businesses and governments across the world, and we are privileged to work with the ACT Government to connect Canberra residents to a brighter, digital future.”
“NEC’s technology will play a critical role in ensuring Canberrans have a connected, smart, and seamless transport network.”
As a global leader in critical communications infrastructure, developing smart cities and intelligent transport systems, 5G O-RAN, artificial intelligence and biometrics, NEC has the capability to drive Australia’s digital transformation.

Mr Duggan said that NEC’s human-centric approach to technology helps to build trust and legitimacy between citizens, their governments, and the technology they are using.
“With NEC’s Smart Mobility Platform at the core of the next generation ticketing system, Canberra residents can be assured that their public transport is equipped with the most advanced technology that is reliable, safe, and secure.”
NEC will use its Canberra facilities to deliver the Smart Mobility Platform, and a local ACT team to operate and maintain the solution throughout the life of the contract.
