LOT Group Installs New Fare Collection System in Kharkov Subway | May 15, 2012

LOT Group has completed implementing a new AFC solution in one of Europe's leading subway systems.

LOT Group has completed implementing a new AFC system in the Kharkov Subway – one of Eastern Europe's most powerful subway systems that consists of 39 stations, and has an annual passenger load in excess of 239.2 million people (2012).

In the delivered solution the tokens have been phased out by bar-coded tickets, thus significantly reducing the costs of the support system. It is planned that Kharkov Subway will be able to save up to USD 2.5 million per year due to the new system's implementation.

The new system is expected to cover its cost within a year's time, as the cost of a bar-coded ticket is less than 1 cent, while the support of the token-based payment system costs around USD 200 000 per month.

Importantly the implemented system is secure and reliable – it's impossible to fake tickets. The system reads the bar code and removes it from the database, thus making fare evasion completely impossible.
