4.6 - Collect Transit Fares in the Vehicle

This page shows the collection of processes that make up the Collect Transit Fares in the Vehicle facility within the Manage Transit function. These processes collect fares from travelers as they board transit vehicles, for the use of current transit services, advanced payments for transit services, and for other (yellow pages) services. The fare payment processing may be carried out interactively from on-board the vehicle, or may be held until the vehicle reaches a convenient point and then carried out as a batch transaction. The processes support the use of debit/credit cards, including those with stored credit value, as may be issued by transit operators as well as financial institutions. When a violation of an interactive payment transaction is detected, an image of the offending traveler will be obtained from the vehicle for use by the law enforcement agency.
