The city of Vinnitsa, Ukraine, is implementing a new system for automated fare collection based on the CIPURSE open security standard from Infineon Technologies.
The company has been selected as the sole supplier of the security chips to be embedded into 200,000 transportation cards for the city’s trams and buses. The cards will be issued from summer 2019 onwards.
The project is headed by the municipal company Vinnitsa Card Service. Infineon is providing the CIPURSE security chips to be embedded into the cards.
The hardware equipment for the terminals is being provided by Mikroelektronika from the Czech Republic while Symbol Transport from Ukraine is responsible for software integration.
Further, the city of Vinnitsa also plans to introduce social cards which combine transport ticketing with payment functionality. As part of the Ukrainian government’s roadmap towards a digital economy and society, similar projects have already been implemented in Ukraine for example, the local banks in the city of Zhitomir are issuing multi-application cards with CIPURSE-based security chips from Infineon.
At the UITP Global Public Transport Summit in Stockholm, 9-12 June 2019, Infineon will be exhibiting transit ticketing solutions for seamless and convenient mobility.
