Mowasalat announced its recent accolade as the ‘Ticketing Enabler of the Year’ at the prestigious Transport Ticketing Global Awards held in London, UK.

This award was received in recognition of the successful integration of the Hayya Card for public bus usage during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, achieved in collaboration with the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy and technology partner Kentkart.

The Hayya Card integration project was a cornerstone of the transport services for the World Cup, providing a free of charge, seamless access to various modes of transportation for the attendees. This innovative solution enabled 921,385 fans to effortlessly navigate through Qatar, enhancing their experience of the tournament while bolstering public transport usage.

Ahmed Al Muftah, CAO of Mowasalat, stated that the award reflects the hard work and dedication of their team, the Supreme Committee and Kentkart. ‘Together, we have set a new standard for smart transportation in major global events. We are deeply honoured by this recognition and motivated to continue our innovation drive towards easy and convenient public transport for all.’

The integration not only supported the massive influx of international visitors but also demonstrated Mowasalat’s capability to implement advanced technology solutions in a high-stakes environment.
