Integrated e-ticketing has been long on the agenda of European Union transport policy. Although several European countries have developed such integrated systems, so far, at European Union level there has not been created a single system for online booking and purchasing travel tickets for multimodal transport. Several studies have shown what are the challenges and barriers to developing, at European Union level, an integrated system of booking and issuing travel tickets for multimodal passenger transport: lack of trust between the operators, high competition, lack of experience or expertise and missing legal framework. Nevertheless, e-ticketing is definitively one of the important future directions of transport ticketing. Online booking and purchasing a travel ticket offers a lot of benefits, not only for passengers, but also for passenger transport companies and responds to the current needs of the society, one of them being the need to travel.
