TCRP Report 177: Preliminary Strategic Analysis of Next Generation Fare Payment Systems for Public Transportation addresses how next generation transit fare payment (NGFP) systems can be designed to improve the customer experience, streamline transit system operation, and integrate transit more effectively within the broader context of mobility management. With their legacy fare collection systems approaching the end of their useful life and emerging technologies expanding fare payment options, many transit agencies are seeking information and solutions for NGFP systems. The report will assist transit agencies and other practitioners involved in decision-making related to NGFP systems.
