Ask and Ideco, its South African partner, announced that they have been selected by the Bombela Operating Company as one of the suppliers to the Gautrain project. ASK will provide the contactless smartcards of the automatic fare collection (AFC) system, based on its contactless technology. Ideco will provide project support and post-personalisation services.
The Gautrain system will use the contactless ticketing system for all travellers between Johannesburg, Pretoria and OR Tambo International Airport, with various stops along each route.
The AFC system will provide convenient access to railway, feeder bus and parking services. Existing motorists and airport passengers are the primary focus in order to relieve the increasing congestion on roads, and the Gautrain provides a safe and clean environment in which to travel.
