The system is comprised of 155 new Ticket Vending Devices (TVDs), seven Ticket Office Machines (TOMs), and a core back-office revenue management system. The new TVDs accept both cash and cashless transactions, are ADA-compliant, and provide an easy-to-use touchscreen experience.
INIT’s back-end clearing and revenue processing system, MOBILEvario, serves as the core intelligence of the project. MOBILEvario facilitates the management of the individual customer accounts, setting of fare rules, revenue processing, and statistical evaluation reporting.
The system was designed following an open architecture approach. Using open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) allows for integration with third-party systems today, and potential enhancements in the future.
- Increased operational efficiencies through reduced costs of cash handling and improved boarding times
- More fare payment options
- Higher security with account-based fares
- Open APIs for integration with 3rd parties
