Smartcards and magnetics can be dispensed from the Vendstar 4, including the patented technologies DESfire EV1, MIFARE Classic, thin Ultralight, and Ultralight C. Each media type has specific advantages and can work with a variety of Genfare’s onboard fareboxes.
The Vendstar 4 can also verify and recharge fare media using its tap-and-go technology, barcode scanner, or validator slot.
The Vendstar 4 makes ticket purchasing easy from the first time riders encounter it. The face of the machine is clearly marked with numerical indicators of steps one, two and three.
First, riders select their desired type of ticket or pass using a simple side-button interface. Step two prompts the rider to insert money. The Vendstar 4 accepts cash in the form of bills or coins as well as credit and debit cards. Step three dispenses the fare media, receipt, and change in one simple slot.
