SPX Genfare was awarded a contract by the San Antonio, Texas-based VIA Metropolitan Transit to upgrade its fare collection process.
The agency will replace a 20-year-old system with Genfare’s newest electronic fare media collection and data management technology for a better and more convenient transit experience.
VIA will be adding SPX Genfare’s Odyssey Plus fareboxes and the e-Fare Web-based sales and management solution. Odyssey Plus accepts and processes magnetic fare and smart cards, in addition to accepting, issuing and validating electronic transfers. The Web-based e-Fare is a smart card solution that allows riders to buy and update fare media online using a computer, tablet or smart phone. (full article)
