 2008 Fare Collection Study Mission - Asia

Continuing a tradition of exploring and learning from public transportation systems around the globe, APTA conducted a study mission to Hong Kong, Seoul, Korea, and Tokyo, Japan in June 2008. Both public and private sector APTA members embarked on the ten-day trip focused on fare collection with an emphasis on electronic payment systems and innovations.

The group visited both bus and rail oriented transit operations in all three cities and also met with local government authorities to gain insight into the policy aspects of fare collection in the region.

Participants in the mission were:

Delegation leader:
