JR Kyushu to Introduce QR Code-Based Ticketless Service Next Fall

JR Kyushu QR code-based ticketless service

JR Kyushu will introduce a ticketless service using QR codes in the fall of 2024.

When reserving some of the main special plan products that can be completed within Kyushu through the “JR Kyushu Internet Train Reservation Service” and selecting “QR Boarding,” passengers will be able to pass through the ticket gates using a QR code displayed on a smartphone app.

The service will apply to the main express trains departing from and arriving at Hakata Station, as well as products for the West Kyushu Shinkansen operating section. Set products with the express train “Kaiou” and facility exchange tickets are excluded. Plans are in place to expand the range of services from the fiscal year 2025 and beyond.
