Intelligent fare collection
The best operating models for urban transit fare collection systems are based on the active participation of all system actors (authorities, transport operators, administrators and passengers), all of them having clearly defined functions, all of them acting under a single legal framework, and with all their rights and duties orientated toward social, economic and environmental sustainability, and promoting the massive utilization of public urban transit.
Smartmatic's Intelligent Fare Collection System (iFCS) represents the ultimate end-to-end technology solution that can support the best practices in urban transit fare collection operations, whether the payment medium is based on the latest electronic payment technologies, simple cash, or both. Precise information in real-time, precise control in real-time, of all aspects of the operation that goes on in the entire transportation network, all handled and presented in a practical and secure way.
Our portfolio includes all on-board equipment to control payment, all station-based equipment for access and payment, and all central equipment required for continuous control of the entire operation, and for intelligent, preventative, corrective, or contingency responses, in all aspects of the transportation network. All intelligence, either on-board or at the ground stations is embodied into specially-designed equipment with extensive parameterization options.
Our iFCS is an integral part of the Smart Urban Transit Platform, and it fulfills an essential function within our Mobility Control Center.
