Frequently asked questions
Walk-In provides you with a valid ticket without a single click. Simply enable Bluetooth and abilio will track your trip. This function uses so-called iBeacons, which are installed in SOB trains and BLWE buses.
If you are on a BLWE bus or an SOB train, abilio will automatically generate a valid ticket.
Until 6 p.m. on the following day, abilio will automatically charge your credit card for the trips that you made.
Before boarding, you can select your preferred class in the “Swipe-In & Walk-In” menu. Your choice is recorded, and your ticket is valid for the selected class.
For technical reasons, Walk-In and Swipe-In are currently only available for iOS and Samsung smartphones. We are constantly developing the system to ensure the functions are made available for other smartphone models soon.
