February 9, 2017

A Ticketing system that  meets the requirements of transport companies and bus carriers is vital for uniting systems of Electronic Fare Collection and GPS satellite tracking of vehicles, additionally monitoring basic telemetry data such as speed, temperature, engine RPM and fuel level. Based on that data it is possible to monitor the entire fleet of vehicles, allowing transport companies to fully control its vehicles and provide greater safety and comfort for its passengers and transported goods.

Digital transformation in the ticketing system 

 Electronic cards payment is a set of systems and devices that are used for selling and billing tickets for electronic card control.

Cheaper fares with pre-pay and contactless solutions are an incentive to take-up, as is multiple transit system validity and cards’ ability to calculate and charge the cheapest possible fares.
  • For transit operators the advantages include dispensing with printing physical tickets and operate ticket offices, freeing up staff for other roles. Meanwhile the data cards gives improved insights into journey patterns, including multimodal public transit use.
