Our mission

Genfare elevates public transit by building mobility solutions that simplify the rider experience, empower equity, and connect communities.

Our transformation

Genfare has transformed from a manufacturer of fare collection hardware to a partner to transit agencies as a provider of full-scale equitable mobility solutions.

 

 

 

For more than 40 years, Genfare has been the premier supplier of American-made fareboxes, but today we’re on a new journey. We’re driving the industry forward with innovative and equitable mobility solutions that let the rider pay with whatever is in their pocket.

How Genfare elevates transit

We simplify the rider experience

We simplify the rider experience by making it easy for every member of the community to pay the best fare as they move through their journey. Our products simplify and speed fare collection with clear and concise rider and operator interfaces.

We empower equitable mobility

We empower equitable mobility with cost-effective solutions that allow all riders to board transit with whatever form of payment is in their pocket. Our secure solutions empower transit agencies by reporting and providing actionable data to inform smart planning and decision-making.

We connect communities

We connect communities with seamless end-to-end mobility solutions in partnership with local businesses, schools, and organizations. Our services optimize revenue collection with responsive installation, maintenance, and technical services.

We are made in America

Genfare systems are Buy America compliant, as we make everything in our Illinois facility. We are also ISO 9001 certified, complying with international quality control in all aspects of our business.
