Why Switch to CR6000 now?
The ability to purchase tickets off-vehicle is a necessity for transit systems with goals for reducing on-board and dwelling time. Keeping these numbers down is a key metric for customer satisfaction and can reduce public health risks associated with close, slow-moving lines and on-vehicle dwelling time.
The rise in used vehicle costs and reduction in availability of new vehicles, combined with rising fuel costs, is also driving more people to use public transit systems. Additionally, these new and previous riders are intimately familiar with smartphone technology and are primed for using contactless payments and fare validation.
With increased ridership expected as well as peak consumer demand for forward-thinking technology, there has never been a more ideal time to transition to fully electronic fareboxes.
