The Oslo Pass app is available for iOS in App Store and for Android in Google Play and can be downloaded free of charge (search "oslopass"). In the app you may purchase Oslo Passes for adults, seniors or children for a duration of 24, 48 or 72 hours. All four major credit cards are accepted and you may buy several Oslo Passes on one smart phone, provided you visit the same attractions together.
The Oslo Pass app has been developed in a close collaboration between the museums and attractrions in Oslo, VisitOSLO and Ruter, the public transport company in Oslo. Ruter launched their mobile ticket last year, and the Oslo Pass is using the same control mechanisms as Ruter for security. The Norwegian company WTW, specialized in user friendly and flexible mobile technology, has developed the Oslo Pass app.
The Oslo Pass app requires internet access every morning (most hotel lobbies in Oslo have free WiFi) in order to download today's QR-code and animation, and works off line the rest of the day. When entering a museum the QR code is scanned. When using public transport, no scanning is necessary except in case of a ticket control.
- The Oslo Pass app opens new possibilities in product development, distribution and marketing. For the first time we can track which attractions are most popular in the different target groups, segments and duration periods, and conduct future product development according to these results, says project manager Eva Britt Kornfeldt at VisitOSLO. The Oslo Pass will still be available in paper as earlier, but we believe the Oslo Pass app will gain popularity and market shares already this summer.
