In North Rhine-Westphalia, a new era of digitalization in public transportation begins with the introduction of “Schülerfahrkosten Online” (Student Travel Costs Online).

Initiated as part of the “Digital Model Region NRW”, “Schülerfahrkosten Online” was supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization, and Energy of the State of NRW. This project is the result of a successful collaboration between regio iT and the cities of Gütersloh and Bielefeld, as well as the Municipal Computing Center Lower Rhine (KDN).

  • Integration and Compatibility: The software integrates seamlessly into existing systems like VOIS|MESO and SchILDcentral and communicates effectively with geographic information systems and transport companies.

Technical Features and Security

“Schülerfahrkosten Online” was developed with a strong focus on security and data protection. The application considers the specific challenges and needs in handling sensitive data, offering a completely web-based solution that requires no local installation.

Features of the Web Application
