Slide 1:  The Emergence of Open Payment Fare Systems – Open Payments Systems

January 18, 2011

[This slide contains an image of rapid-transit passengers entering and exiting a train at a station.]

Slide 2:  Discussion Items

Slide 3:  CFMS Overview

[This slide contains a diagram of a wheel with Contactless Fare Media Standard (CFMS) at the hub and its five parts (1. Introduction and Overview; 2. CFM Data Format and Interfaces; 3. Regional Clearing System Interface; 4. Security Planning, Implementation and Best Practices; 5. Common Certification and Testing) radiating from that hub.]

Slide 4:  CFMS Future Actions

[This slide contains a smaller version of slide 3's CFMS wheel diagram with the five radiating parts numbered but not named.]

Slide 5:  Electronic Ticketing Trends are Driving the Need for Open Architecture

While Smart Transit Cards remain mature, flexibility is key given the uncertainty of customer preferences towards future technologies

Slide 6:  Key Open Architecture Considerations

[This slide contains a diagram illustrating the relationship between (1) the transit customer or cardholder, (2) the distributed systems that gather the card information, (3) the central system that gathers the data from the distributed systems for (5) the transit agency, and (6) the financial services that allow the customer to pay the transit agency.]

Slide 7:  Open Architecture and Payment System Design

[This slide contains a diagram illustrating the relationship between the components of the open architecture and payment system design. Packaged software used at customer/service-provider/reporting-analytics portals and at remote service locations is configured and customized to their respective interfaces to be used over a variety of wide-area, local-area, and cellular networks.]
