MyHSR Corporation Sdn Bhd (MyHSR Corp) of Malaysia and the Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) are inviting companies specialising in Ticketing & Fare Collection (TFC) to share the latest ticketing technology and developments for the purposes of developing a robust TFC approach for the Kuala Lumpur – Singapore High Speed Rail (HSR) project. Companies with expertise in TFC are invited to attend the discussions to be held in Kuala Lumpur on 9 - 10 October 2017.

Inputs from the discussions will be taken into consideration when MyHSR Corp and LTA structure the ticketing and fare collection ecosystem, including how the Assets Company (AssetsCo) and Operating Companies (OpCos) are involved in the ticketing process.
