Every rider choosing to purchase tickets with e-Fare is one less rider standing in line for one-on-one clerk assistance. E-Fare also speeds up boarding time by allowing riders to use smartcards rather than cash with the onboard farebox.
Riders can receive their e-Fare smartcard in several ways. One way is by mail from the central office to their chosen shipping address. The smartcard can also be picked up from ticket vending machines or the local transit office or retail location.
SIMPLE SOFTWARE INTEGRATION
Our e-Fare purchasing software is designed to be easy to launch on pre-existing websites. Alternatively, some transit agencies choose to create an entirely new website for e-Fare processing. Either way, the seamless transition prevents downtime and gets the new software launched as soon as possible.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY BENEFITS
IT departments especially appreciate our e-Fare software technology. With scalable architecture and an emphasis on security, e-Fare has guaranteed uptime. Our secure PCI certified payment process keeps riders’ credit card information secure, as it is never stored with the transit agency.
The e-Fare system processes receipts on a daily basis, improving cash flow and providing more accurate, up-to-date accounting data. This data is also able to provide a wealth of vital information for custom reports on sales, ridership data, and operations.
Additionally, the option for riders to enroll in monthly auto-replenishment improves rider loyalty and provides regular income for the agency. Large organizations can even bulk purchase smartcards online for groups for events like conferences.
