Hoplink : A service for all networks using the Calypso ticketing technology.
Go for Hoplink
Designed for rapid deployment
Integrate the Hoplink app into the cards you issue to allow your customers to use them on all the other networks that have adopted it.
Integrate the Hoplink keys into your security modules and adapt the software of your sales and validation devices. You will be able to accept the Hoplink cards issued by other operators.
A reduction in production costs
You will no longer need to provide cards to occasional travelers who use your network and have a Hoplink card.
This will result in significant savings in costs and distribution, you fortify your commitment to sustainable mobility.
Robust and completely secure
Based on the Calypso standard, which is designed to allow interoperability between networks, Hoplink addresses transport users’ need for greater simplicity in their travel.
Hoplink does not compromise the security of the contracts hosted on the cards and can host new ones in accordance with the same rules.
Simple and convenient
You simply need to update your software.
There is no clearing involved between network operators. You do not need to negotiate bilateral commercial agreements.
All you need to do is to join the Hoplink Alliance, which brings together all the authorities and operators offering this service.

A unique charter for a unique solution
Hoplink, formerly known as Triangle, works on the basis of sharing and pooling within an Alliance, rather than on the basis of commercial agreements between networks. The Alliance consists of all the transport authorities, operators and service providers that have chosen to use Hoplink and that ensure its governance.
This governance defines and controls the business rules and ensures that security principles are complied with.
Each member of the Alliance signs the charter, which sets out its obligations towards all the other members.
Each new Hoplink signatory improves the value of the service offered to users. The greater the number of partners, the greater this value for all.
