Matt Lewis is Head of Swift at TfWM and a thought leader in the area of Automated Fares Collection (AFC) with more than 20 years’ experience of working within the public transport sector.
Matt has overseen the delivery of Swift which is the largest and most comprehensive smart ticketing solution in the UK outside of London and now includes Account Based Ticketing with best value capping across bus and tram operators. Work is also underway to rollout the functionality onto the local rail network.
Matt and his team are currently working on the integration of Swift into Mobility as a Service and the development of an integration solution for cEMV contactless payment. The successful completion of these projects should set out the West Midlands and Swift as the benchmark for AFC solutions.
