INIT equips C-TRAN fleet with e-fare system

Posted on January 22, 2015

C-TRAN,  the Clark County Public Transportation Benefit Area  recently signed a contract with INIT Innovations in Transportation, Inc. for the delivery of a state of the art electronic fare collection system in Vancouver, Wash. C-TRAN will equip their fleet of more than 100 vehicles with PROXmobil fare validators that when fully operational, will offer their passengers both Closed Loop and Open Payment fare options.

The agreement was made in cooperation with the Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet), who awarded INIT the contract for an account-based fare management system in April of 2014. INIT will provide a seamless integration of C-TRAN with the regional e-fare system operated by TriMet.

The account-based fare management system will allow passengers the convenience of simply tapping their smart cards, smartphones or contactless credit card to pay for fares within the region. INIT’s Central Processing System, MOBILEvario, will be used to deliver processing and clearing of revenues for both agencies. MOBILEvario will offer greater flexibility and ease of mobility when traveling on the bi-state transportation systems, including fare capping which automatically offers travelers the lowest possible fare.

Because of the Open Architecture, the project will create greater synergy between the neighboring cities and throughout the surrounding service area by providing a completely interoperable system. MOBILEvario’s online validation server will process all account transactions providing accurate, split second revenue processing, while at the same time protecting individual agency data and fare structures.
