German Railway Offers Cell-Phone Tickets

Germany's national railway launched today a service that allows passengers to buy tickets with their mobile phones, according to The Washington Post.

"Customers who use the service receive a multimedia message on their mobile phones that's read by new scanners and serve as a ticket. Booking via cell phone is available until 10 minutes before a train's departure. Customers must register for the service online before buying their first mobile phone ticket.

... The railway operator said all train ticket collectors should be equipped with the new scanners by mid-September."
