As contactless cards become the preferred choice for automatic fare collection worldwide, ASSA ABLOY is supplying the drive.

ASSA ABLOY works with card manufacturers and operators in the mass transit industry to identify efficient and reliable card technologies that reduce maintenance and ownership costs, and increase ridership. ASSA ABLOY is a leader in providing single-card systems that empower cardholder access to multiple modes of transportation.

In 2010, all 13,000 taxicabs in New York City accepted contactless payment, with the New York bus and transit systems to follow in the next few years. Contactless technology empowers transportation authorities to improve efficiency and cut costs. It enables faster payment processing and real-time data reporting, even from remote transit locations.

Passengers benefit from an easy-to-use system with faster transactions and shorter queues. They may even enjoy the convenience of additional services – such as cashless payment, vending, banking, or access control – in a single card.

ASSA ABLOY cards and components are compliant with international standards and protocols, for seamless integration and interoperability, tailored to the requirements of each transit authority. We produce reliable, high-quality cards and components, in any quantity, to support legacy protocols as well as bridge systems.
