"Using Apple Pay and Google Pay to pay for products online or at the store has been around for some time. More recently, transit agencies are adding these options for pay-as-you-go services at the point of travel as we've seen in Chicago and London," said Matt Cole, president of CTS. "Other major metropolitan areas like New York and Boston are on the horizon and it won't be long before consumers will be pushing to use open payment options for tolling."
Tate's presentation will explore how open payment systems are utilized in transit and discuss what in-vehicle changes are needed and how the tolling back office can be transformed into a mobility service account to expand payment options for customers.
Tate will present at the following session within the "Back Office Systems" technology track:
Open Payment Systems: Monday, April 23 at 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (local time); Carolina Ballroom C-E of the Sheraton Charlotte/Le Méridien Complex.
CTS will also demonstrate its tolling back office in the Symphony Ballroom. The Cubic Tolling Back Office solution is designed for multiagency use while giving each tolling authority control over its own business rules, revenue apportionment and general ledger. The solution lays a solid foundation for account-based payment processing and customer services across entire states or multistate regions for any number of agencies or types of operators.
