Kapsch TrafficCom Tapped for Mobile Ticketing with MARTA

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) has awarded Kapsch TrafficCom a contract to design, develop, implement, support, and maintain a turnkey regional Mobile Ticketing System (MTS).

The new MTS will allow MARTA riders to order, pay, and electronically validate tickets using their mobile smart devices via a mobile application as well as directly through the mobile ticketing website.

The system enables users to access MARTA’s transit system within Atlanta, GA and surrounding communities. MARTA is the ninth-largest rapid transit system in the United States, spanning almost 50 miles of rail and over 1,400 miles of bus routes. Every weekday, over 500,000 people rely on MARTA for transportation.

The MARTA project, with a value of just under $11M, will be delivered through the cooperation of Kapsch sister companies Kapsch TrafficCom, Kapsch CarrierCom, and Kapsch Public TransportCom.

The MTS simplifies the process of buying and validating fares, enabling users to purchase tickets at their convenience and manage commutes without the need to visit a kiosk. Additionally, patrons can validate fare purchases via electronic validators when entering and exiting both buses and unmanned rail stations.
