Transportation will deliver 1,700 smartcard ticket validators to Dutch transport company RET in Spring 2019. The technology will be used by commuters on buses and trams in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Conduent says its VPE 430 validators, integrated with software from IT services provider Sigmax, will allow riders to pay via a Dutch OV Chipkaart public transport payment card as well as bank cards and smartphones with barcodes or near-field communication.
In September, the company extended its contactless card payment system to one line of the bus rapid transit system in Puebla, Mexico.
In a separate contract, Conduent implemented the fare collection system for state agency Carreteras de Cuota’s tourist train which runs from Puebla City to the Cholula district.
