Scheidt & Bachmann ticketing technology supplements Luas Cross City

- Fare-collection-systems

Luas Cross City, the next phase of Dublin’s integrated light rail network, has been launched on December 9, extending the existing Green Line through Dublin city centre to Broombridge.

Scheidt & Bachmann’s ticketing technology has been used on Luas since it went live in 2004. Transport Infrastructure Ireland’s satisfaction with these systems saw them equip all of the new 13 Stations along the 5.9km extension with new ticket vending machines and smart card validators from Scheidt & Bachmann.

The new ticket vending machines offer the highest security for credit card payments, using the Point-To-Point Encryption (P2PE) solution from Mastercard Payment Gateway Services and Scheidt & Bachmann. The existing ticket vending machines at the Red and Green line will also be upgraded with the P2PE solution over the next few months.
