Simple and convenient ticketing is always welcomed by travelers. With the continued growing number of passengers for train, bus, ferry and subway services, it is vital that the processing time per transaction is less and at the same time, transport systems should provide the required security. Creating convenience and ease in transportation is now easy with secure e-ticketing solutions for the service providers.
Many transport systems worldwide are migrating from magnetic cards to e-ticketing based on secure contactless technology, where every passenger is uniquely identified based on personal data verification. Contactless devices (cards and tokens) offer quick, efficient and hassle-free commuting to passengers, while providing benefit to the service providers by streamlining the ticketing process for daily commuters.
The most common areas of secure contactless card applications in transport are ticketing solutions for public transportation services and payments for car park facilities. Contactless automatic fare collection solutions can be implemented on various levels, based on exact requirements.
