    • Jaunt, Inc. - AVL and Automated Fare Collection Systems

      AUTOMATED VEHICLE LOCATION (AVL) AND SMART FARE PAYMENT (AUTOMATED FARE COLLECTION) SYSTEMS

      JAUNT Inc. is a regional transportation system providing service to the citizens of the City of Charlottesville, Albemarle, Fluvanna, Louisa, Nelson, Buckingham, and Culpeper Counties.

      JAUNT is interested in learning more about Automated Vehicle Location (AVL) and Smart Fare Payment (automated fare collection) systems. Both systems must be compatible with our existing scheduling software, TripSpark by Trapeze.

      The core system for both AVL and Smart Fare Payment should be able to track vehicle performance such as vehicle mileage, rider count, time of pickup/drop-offs, and estimated travel time.

      The AVL system should be outward facing for customers to be able to track the location and status of buses and inward facing for dispatch staff.

      Our long-term goal with the Automated/Smart Fare payment collection is to eliminate cash and paper tickets; however, the system must be able to process cash and paper tickets until we reach that point. We would like the ability to collect fare payment via smart cards, credit cards, smart phones, and other “smart” forms of payment (i.e. other company’s badges). Additionally, the system must be compatible with fare payment used by the fixed-route service provider in the area – Charlottesville Area Transit.

      JAUNT, Inc. will accept on-site demos from May through June. Our intent is to get a better understanding of available technology in the marketplace that best fit JAUNT’s operations so we can submit a formal request for purchase by the end of July 2017.
