Our validators help to the handicapped

We always aim to combine new technology with new ideas, so that we could offer attractive services and higher user comfort. And it is even more enjoyable if we can support beneficent purpose at the same time. Last year we have launched cooperation with the Endowment fund of Czech Radio called Světluška (Eng. Firefly). This fund provides support for visually handicapped people. Together with the ČSOB bank we now present a unique tool to collect money for Světluška through our fare collection validators. They are not placed in vehicles though, but in selected branches of ČSOB banks.  Passers-by can donate selected amount and the validator will print a receipt.

Beside the charity function the event also points out the fact, that ČSOB in cooperation with Mikroelektronika was the first to introduce payment with EMV contactless cards in public transport on domestic market. Our fare collection system accepting EMV cards in vehicles or stations can be found in Prague, Liberec, Brno and in České Budějovice.
