Automated fare collection (AFC) refers to a software-based ticketing system usually deployed at entry and exit points of public transport units. It is used for metro trains, buses, rapid transit systems and boats. It consists of an automatic gate, ticket vending and ticket checking machines and recharging terminals. AFC systems are also compatible with various payment methods, such as open and closed-loop systems, mobile applications, top-ups and physical ticketing. In comparison to the traditional fare collection systems, AFCs offer various benefits, such as contactless payment, higher operational transparency and minimal risks of human error and chances of cloning, theft or missed payment.
Rapid digitization across industries, along with the widespread adoption of sustainable and smart public transport infrastructure, is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. AFC systems are being used across the globe to improve public convenience by minimizing waiting time in queues. Furthermore, the increasing utilization of smartphone applications to access travel route information and online booking of tickets, is also driving the market growth. These applications are equipped with contactless open payment solutions through debit and credit cards, which ensures a hassle-free fare payment experience. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the development of open road tolling (ORT) and near-field communication (NFC) systems, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These systems are installed on toll booths for enabling free-flowing toll collection and minimizing traffic congestion. Other factors, including the implementation of favorable government policies to improve transport infrastructure, along with the increasing development of smart cities across the globe, are anticipated to drive the market further.
