OTI, ERG Solutions supply card readers to Utah

Posted on August 5, 2008


On Track Innovations Ltd. (OTI), a contactless microprocessor-based smart card system provider, will supply contactless readers to the ERG Group, a smart card automated fare collection equipment provider, for Utah Transit Authority's (UTA) contactless credit card bus payment systems.

The contract for the full rollout of the system in the Salt Lake City metropolitan area follows the recently reported successful pilot project completed by ERG and UTA.

For the pilot, buses serving Salt Lake City area ski resorts were equipped with the new system, which allowed customers to use contactless credit cards and other smart cards for both transit payment and ski resort access. UTA's system will similarly allow passengers the choice of contactless credit cards and other smart cards for mass transit payment and ski resort access.

UTA 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. At full system roll-out, the system will feature a unique to ERG onboard, rapid authorization of contactless credit cards to minimize any risk of credit card fraud.

OTI is supplying the front-end solutions, including readers and its proprietary software, to support ISO 14443 proximity payments and ISO 15396 vicinity payments.
