What are Fare Collection Systems?
Fare Collection Systems are mostly used in the Public Transport Sector offered for example, by Scheidt & Bachmann within their Fare Collection System range. They show whether traveller’s tickets are valid or not, the tickets are scanned by a conductor on a bus or rail service using a handheld device. If the tickets are invalid it will show up on the screen of the device. Fare Collection Systems can also be used to open buses’ doors to make sure only people with valid tickets can travel on them. To gain access, the passenger would simply hold their ticket up to a sensor on the side of the bus, the ticket would then be read and, provided it’s a valid ticket, the doors would then open.
