Vix Technology’s Contactless Fare Payment Solutions

Vix Technology is leading the contactless payment revolution now at the forefront of the transit industry. Consumers are increasingly familiar with their options to pay by tapping credit or debit cards or by using a smartphone’s mobile wallet, and they are increasingly demanding this technology be offered for their everyday commutes by bus and train.

We offer several products, designed for stations or for on-board services, that can help transit agencies adapt to growing demand and stay ahead of the payment technology curve.

Automated Fare Solutions

Automated fare collection systems allow riders to initiate a transaction, easily select their ticketing or pass options, pay for their fares, and then validate them upon boarding. In some instances, automated and contactless are used interchangeably. 

Automated fare collection has multiple benefits, including reducing contact between transit employees and riders, speeding up boarding time, reducing fraud, and providing better customer experience. Robust analytics also allow transit agencies to track these digitized fares to instantly capture information on efficiency of routes, passenger counts, and other vital metrics in real-time.

Onboard Fare Solutions

The CP6100 can process fare payments with card tapping or smartphone mobile wallets. It can also scan barcodes on physical tickets or smartphones to validate previously purchased tickets or passes.

This contactless reader and validator can be upgraded with a touchscreen that is even more user-friendly in the form of our CP6500.

Offboard Fare Solution

The PCP6100 takes the contactless payment and validation technology of the CP6100 and makes it a secure offboard validator that can withstand inclement weather. 

Our CR6000 is another contactless offboard reader and validator that is suitable as a desktop unit or a small box located on or at gates and vending machines. This system works with the TP58000 to help validate tickets.
