About Member
Kentkart is an information technologies company that produces and develops automated fare collection with smart cards, vehicle tracking, real time passenger information and on-board video surveillance systems for the public transport sector. Established in 1998, it has been awarded its first project in March 1999 in Izmir. It is known for breaking new grounds as a result of its cutting-edge technology and intensive Research and Development.

Since the year it was founded, with 40,000 vehicles and 50,000 hardware products, it reaches up to 2.5 billion passengers a year, and 7.5 million transactions daily, mobilizing those passengers with 16 million smart cards. These striking numbers surely position the company among the prominent in the sector.

Kentkart’s mission is; using nearly 17 years of industry experience, to develop modern, fast, punctual, easy, and secure information technologies and systems in order to meet the needs and expectations of the public transport operators, to offer pleasant journeys for passengers and thus, to grow by introducing multipurpose solutions into our lives.

Extending beyond Turkey and growing globally, Kentkart offers integrated solutions that completely meet the needs and expectations of all public transportation, and at the same time, it produces and develops all system components as software and hardware. Furthermore, it operates the systems and cares for their maintenance 7/24 on behalf of the public transport companies. This very successful business model is being applied in 12 countries and 37 cities (25 domestic and 12 overseas) today.

The prominent feature distinguishing Kentkart from its competitors is the fact that Kentkart takes great care to be a company producing and developing innovative technologies of its own from A to Z rather than being one that follows what is already produced. It is one of the few companies of Turkey which has its own R&D department. Kentkart is supported by TÜBİTAK (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey) for its newly developing applications that carry innovative characteristics.

Kentkart’s innovative solutions brought the company SESAMES “Best Transportation Application” Award in 2000 at the Cartes Exhibition held in Paris every year. Following that, it became a finalist in the “Best Transportation Application” and in the “Best Software Application” branches in 2007 and 2010 respectively and in 2012, again became a finalist with its new product “KentTablet On-board Computer. And in 2014, it won the “Best Overall Service Implementation” at the Transport Ticketing Event in London; thereby securing its leadership for innovation in the sector once more.

The year 2015 brought Kentkart another prestigious award. Each year the analysis organized by Frost&Sullivan, the biggest Growth Partnership company in the world, recognizes the applications of companies from all over the world for innovative and inventive characteristics. This year’s recipient worthy of Frost & Sullivan’s 2015 European Product Line Strategy Leadership Award was Kentkart
