NJ TRANSIT Renews Fare Collection Contract with Conduent

Conduent Transportation received a five-year contract renewal from NJ TRANSIT to continue implementation and upgrades of a contactless fare collection system for customers.

Under the new contract, which builds on a relationship of more than 30 years with NJ TRANSIT, Conduent will also provide maintenance of various hardware and software systems, including ticket vending machines and on-board validators.

Last fall, under the previous contract, Conduent implemented a new “Tap & Ride” payment option for NJ TRANSIT, allowing New Jersey bus and light rail customers to use contactless credit and debit cards. The system is currently usable with existing validators on buses and at light rail stations. Additional ticket types, including Google and Apple payment options, are being made available.
