The Smart and Integrated Ticketing (SIT) team, in the Bus, Accessible and Active Travel Directorate, was established to deliver the Scottish Ministers smart vision “That all journeys on Scotland’s bus, rail, ferry, subway and tram networks can be accessed using some form of smart ticketing or payment”.
By modernising and making access to public transport easier and simpler, the circa £7 million SIT programme aims to encourage model shift to public transport, reduce reliance on private car and support key Government agendas to reduce carbon emissions, and build on innovation and digital skills within Scotland. Mobility as a Service (MaaS) supports this agenda as an enabler, using digital solutions to improve people’s access to travel information, allowing them to make more informed decisions on their journey options. This includes platforms to gather personalised travel requirements into a single app for example, or monthly subscription services to provide unlimited access to all public transport providers.
The current salary range for this role is £47,504 - £59,229 (pro rata for part time). This post attracts a £4,000 Digital Data and Technology (DDaT) pay supplement after a 9 months competency qualifying period (pro rata for part time). Pay supplements are subject to regular review.
