Multipurpose Transit Payment Media
Multipurpose Transit Payment Media
Report Number: R-032
This report will be of interest to transit managers, transit operations personnel involved with fare collection, parking professionals, and the financial services community. It closely examines the potential for incorporating multipurpose payment "smart cards" that can be used to purchase transit services from multiple operators, and potentially, other goods and services (e.g., parking and retail products). The report explores smart card technology, legal and institutional issues linked with introducing multipurpose card programs, cost and revenue impacts, and customer attitudes. On the basis of experiences around the world, guidelines are provided for development of multipurpose programs.
