Vix Technology partnered with Beijing Infrastructure and Investment Company (BII) to help transform the city’s public transport system, while also providing the infrastructure for future expansion.
Based on our award-winning MASS platform Vix introduced the smart card-based Automated Clearing Centre (ACC), which was able to process more than 10 million passenger journeys in less than four hours. The system initially integrated Automated Fare Collection (AFC) systems from five individual AFC providers, providing a single Clearing House across all of Beijing Metro. Since inception, the system has processed more than 18.2 billion passenger journeys with an average 15 per cent year-on-year growth in passenger use. Today, the subway is the world’s busiest in annual ridership, averaging 3.4 billion trips annually (9.3 million per day) with peak single-day ridership reaching 11.6 million journeys.
In 2013, as part of an overall capacity expansion program, the ACC system capacity was scaled to be able to process 18 million passenger journeys and 50 million transactions per day. Vix continues to provide on-going support and maintenance for the ACC system via CCRTT as the system continues to grow.
