A Full ticketing system for buses in Guadalajara

RATP Smart Systems has just won a contract in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara. RATP Smart Systems will provide a full ticketing system including e-Fareboxes in 300 buses, which will allow on-board payment through contactless card validation or by cash with possible change being given back. This system is expected to significantly reduce fraud while providing the user with greater ease of payment. Eventually, the project will be deployed on 1200 buses. Guadalajara is the third largest metropolis in Mexico with a population of just under 5 million.

Cable car is in the air in Guayaquil

RATP Smart Systems wins a new contract in Guayaquil to provide the future cable car with a full ticketing system. Guayaquil, the economic capital of Ecuador is its largest city and is home to the largest harbour on the west coast of Latin America. Nicknamed the “Pearl of the Pacific”, it has 2.3 million inhabitants.

The cable car between Durán and Guayaquil will divide the daily travel time of 230,000 inhabitants by four. The line will connect the economic heart of Guayaquil to the residential area of Durán in 15 minutes (compared to one hour at rush hour currently). With this contract, RATP Smart Systems strengthens its presence in the region and will support the improvement of the mobility of the inhabitants of Guayaquil.

How to better combat fraud ?

Fraud represents a high cost for transport networks. With this in mind, RATP Smart Systems has developed a public transport fraud and ridership analysis tool that compiles millions of validation data. Urban Flows helps maximize passenger revenue and fine collection revenue through the analysis of centralized databases and through the identification of time and location dependent fraud patterns. These data are critical to help fighting fraud in public transport. Transport Operators and Authorities can thus have detailed information on passenger traffic.
