SPX Genfare to upgrade VIA fare collection system

Posted on January 22, 2014

SPX Genfare was awarded a contract by the San Antonio, Texas-based VIA Metropolitan Transit to upgrade its fare collection process.

The agency will replace a 20-year-old system with Genfare’s newest electronic fare media collection and data management technology for a better and more convenient transit experience.

VIA will be adding SPX Genfare’s Odyssey Plus fareboxes and the e-Fare Web-based sales and management solution. Odyssey Plus accepts and processes magnetic fare and smart cards, in addition to accepting, issuing and validating electronic transfers. The Web-based e-Fare is a smart card solution that allows riders to buy and update fare media online using a computer, tablet or smart phone.

VIA began operations in 1978 and now maintains a fleet of more than 500 buses for 90-plus bus lines with more than 7,000 bus stops in San Antonio and Bexar County. The transit agency added Primo bus rapid transit to its mix in December 2012. They also provide paratransit service for riders with special needs.
