CAT wanted to change their dated fareboxes into an advanced system that would improve the customer experience, reduce counterfeits and fraud, accept smart technology, track their university IDs and improve reporting.
Challenges: One of CAT’s biggest challenges was improving their customer experience and eliminating fraud from counterfeit day passes. They also needed more accurate ridership data for better planning and scheduling. As well, based on physical counts on vehicles, CAT realized their drivers were missing payments from five to eight percent of boardings, on average.
