The Open Link validator (OLV) accepts contactless credit or debit cards, smart cards, mobile wallets, or barcodes, expanding payment options while speeding boarding. It’s ideal for several use cases, including accepting digital fare media in buses with older fare boxes, validating fares in microtransit and paratransit vehicles, and rear-door boarding on buses.
- Accepts contactless fare media
- Enables rear-door boarding
- Reduces operator intervention
The Open Link validator enables the introduction of electronic media in conjunction with existing fareboxes and operator control units. It can be mounted in front and rear boarding areas on a stanchion or bulkhead, and can be linked when multiple are used on a vehicle.
Designed for easy maintenance, the OLV performs a self-test when powered up and monitors internal components while in operation. If external power is lost, a backup power source enables the transaction in progress to complete.
Fare structure changes, device configuration, and transaction reporting are available through integration with Genfare Link®, Genfare’s cloud-hosted fare processing platform. Any errors or warnings are also transmitted via Ethernet or Wi-Fi to Genfare Link to notify maintenance staff.
