Taking it handy on the LUASAuthor: Martin Wallace
Passenger ticket inspections on the Luas are about to get a lot faster!
Dovetail has been awarded the contract to supply handheld ticket inspection devices to Transdev, the operator of Luas. The new solution will let Transdev’s Revenue Protection Officers to quickly check the validity of Leap Card tickets on the Luas.
The solution will use the Famoco ruggedised Fx300 model. Dovetail is coordinating the project and the supply of hardware, as well as providing business analysis and software changes.
In trials the new handhelds met with a very positive response due to their speed, portability and ease of use.
The handhelds complement Dovetail’s Standard Fares Notice (Fines) backend processing solution, which we also provide to Transdev.
