Elk Grove Village, Ill. – October 29, 2019 – Genfare, a leader in fare collection solutions for transit agencies of all sizes, highlights its partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS supplies the data hosting for Genfare’s premier cloud-based solution, Genfare Link.

At the core of its services, AWS provides reliability, security, flexibility, and high performance virtually impossible to attain in a local environment. It allows agencies to innovate faster by making their infrastructure swifter and more efficient.
