TruFare Is An End-To-End Automatic Fare Collection System For Rapid Transit Systems

Automated Fare Collection AFC system

The proliferation of mass rapid transportation systems (MRTS), such as metro rails, bus rapid transit systems, and light rails have resulted in unprecedented passenger volumes. This changing business scenario has generated the need for next-generation, smart automatic fare collection (AFC) systems. These AFC systems and solutions not only pave way for leaner operations but also reduce the risks and costs associated with handling cash and infection due to contagions at crowded places of mass transit.

Datamatics’ TruFare is a highly secure, scalable, reliable, and state-of-the-art Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) solution built for the digitally savvy urban transport systems, such as metro rails, automated parking lots, rapid bus transport systems, etc., that experience heavy footfall. It is highly scalable and is capable of handling large passenger volumes without any degradation in the response and user experience. The modularity of the TruFare AFC system allows integration with new technologies and fare media, such as open loop, EMV open loop, QR Code, NFC, account-based ticketing, card-based ticketing, and contactless mobile ticketing. Thereby it enhances the overall passenger commuting experience and reduces the total cost of ownership for the transit operators.
