E-Ticketing & tickets

In addition to the classic sale of paper tickets, ATRON also supports various e-ticketing standards such as

VDV-KA
RKF
Nortic HB206

These standards use contactless smart cards as the user medium, which are issued by the transport association/transport company. Tickets and credit are saved on this user medium when purchasing and can be checked for temporal and areal validity when entering the vehicle or for ticket control.

In addition, ATRON also supports "account based ticketing" or "token ticketing", in which the tickets are only saved in the background system. The customer identifies himself with a suitable user medium (token) such as a debit or credit card.

Sales infrastructure

The world of sales is diverse. From ticket sales by the driver, to sales in advance sale centre and customer centres, to self-service purchases at ticket machines and smart card terminals - ATRON offers the right solution for all requirements:

  • AFR 4 - Board computer for driver-based sales in the vehicle
  • ASTS - Android app for sale with smartphone
  • AFA 150 - Terminal for cashless payment of tickets
  • AFA 270 - Ticket vending machine for use in vehicles
  • AFA 470 - Ticket vending machine for stationary use

Control infrastructure

Secure validation of tickets

Ticket validation is as diverse as ticketing. ATRON has the right solutions for every purpose. The AFR 4 and ACT 420 vending machines serve as entry control - in addition, ATRON also offers solutions for validating the tickets in the second lane and on the rear doors.

  • AVT 4.6 - Driver terminal for the display of test results
  • ACT 422 - Smart card terminal for mobile and stationary uses
  • smart ticket sales &inspection - Android app for mobile control devices

An AVT 4.6 is used as a small display device to display the test results of the ACT 420 if there is no on board computer in the vehicle. In the event that no entry control take place (by use of train conducter & inspectors), ATRON supplies an Android app "ASTI" (ATRON smart vehicle inspection), which can be installed on mobile devices suitable for industrial use. This enables a smooth checking of e-tickets with existing devices.
