The Open Ticketing Institute (OTI) is founded in January 2010 and is the outgrowth of an initiative by Trans Link Systems and several partners to make available the knowledge and experience of the Dutch e-ticketing system in public transport (the OV-chipkaart) to other e-ticketing schemes and interested parties.

OTI is a separate not-for-profit foundation with its own management and supervisory board.

OTI has been responsible for a program for the follow-up technology of the OV-chipkaart. This program was financially supported by the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. Its findings are publicly available.

OTI has successfully applied for funding from the European Union as part of the Horizon 2020 Transport Programme and has been awarded a grant for the project “The European Travellers Club: Account-Based Travelling across the European Union”. The project started at 1st of May 2015 and will last 24 months.
