Transport inspection

A transport inspection system is used to verify that passengers follow transport rules, particularly that they are using valid fare documents. Most commonly used are contactless chip cards and paper tickets, although inspection of other documents can also be applied, such as SMS tickets, 2D codes on displays, bar code tickets etc. The system is designed to simplify the work of inspectors as much as possible, to make their work more effective and to eliminate any attempts to cheat the system.

Inspection on vehicles

After getting on to a vehicle, a transport inspector places inspector’s card to the vehicle validator. This provides him all information necessary for transport inspection and subsequently transfers it into the inspector's card reader. At the same time all validators can be blocked so that passengers are unable to validate their cards during the inspection.

The inspector’s reader automatically checks whether cards are valid based on the required parameters, which differ depending on the type of fare collection system and the fare structure. The considered parameters might be, for example, presence of a time coupon, time interval since validation, presence of a document bought using an electronic purse, valid area, zone, presence of a card on the blacklist etc. If required, the reader can also print out a document, such as confirmation of paid fine.

All information about inspections is stored in the memory for later processing. The operator therefore has an overview of the documents inspected and of the work of the inspector.

Processing transport inspection data

The transport inspection application comes as part of the SW for the administration of the fare collection system FareOn and it is mainly used for the following work:

  • the administration of inspectors
  • keeping records of inspectors’ readers
  • recording and reading data from/to readers
  • overview of inspection results
  • creation of statistics, reports and user-defined output
