ERG Group wins Utah contract

Posted on June 17, 2008

 

The ERG Group, a world leader in smart card automated fare collection solutions has signed a contract with Utah Transit Authority (UTA) to further develop and implement a contactless fare payment solution, which will include acceptance of contactless credit cards.

 

The contract for the full rollout of the system follows on the heels of the pilot project completed by ERG and UTA. In the pilot, buses serving Salt Lake City area ski resorts were equipped with the new system, which, in addition to offering the payment choice of contactless credit cards, allowed customers to use smart cards for both transit payment and ski resort access.

 

 

The system will allow a variety of cards to be used for fare payment, including UTA-issued, employer provided transit smart cards, local university passes, ski resort passes and contactless credit cards.

 

Development and deployment of the system will be a collaborative effort between ERG and UTA, with integration of UTA’s existing on-board equipment and ERG’s software and hardware.
