Upgrades to more than 220 ticket vending machines will offer an improved rider experience for commuters
Florham Park, NJ /PRNewswire/ - Extending a three-decade partnership, Calgary Transit will upgrade its operations with technology and services from Conduent Transportation, a business unit of Conduent Incorporated (NYSE: CNDT), to help make riders' daily commutes easier. Under a new five-year contract, Conduent will make various improvements to the public transit systems in Calgary. Starting in 2019, the company will modernize more than 220 legacy ticket vending machines throughout the city to provide riders an enhanced experience using new touch screen displays and to support a roadmap for future payment options.
"Part of our customer commitment is to make our system easy to use," said Chris Jordan, manager, Service Design, Calgary Transit. "Conduent is helping us to deliver an efficient and effective fare collection system that Calgarians should be proud of."
Calgary Transit's existing software will also be upgraded to Conduent's ATLAS® ticketing system, which will further enhance security without any impacts to riders. The new software is capable of processing all types of user transactions, including deducting fees from a rider's account balance, recognizing a monthly plan or charging a credit card.
"Calgary Transit is a great partner with a keen eye toward the future," said Mick Slattery, CEO, Conduent Transportation. "The enhancements we're making to the systems will open doors to more options for their customers."
