Ticketing solutions for rail networks
Parkeon ticketing technology is widely applied across a number of rail networks in Europe.
Parkeon has installed thousands of platform ticket vending machines (TVM) providing cost-effective solutions for operators and third party systems integrators.
Parkeon terminals offer mass-transit operators a fully scaleable and cost-effective solution, with a variety of configurations and a choice of user interfaces and payment methods.
Built on PC-based open architecture, these machines make it easy for transport operators to develop and maintain specific functional applications, while the company’s solutions for the centralisation of terminals, e-parametrization, remote equipment supervision, data management and analysis facilitate efficient management of operations.
Parkeon is a long-term partner of SNCF (French National Railways) for more than 20 years. There have been several generations of automatic dispensers integrating new technologies. Today, the TVMs feature latest technologies for contactless, electronic ticket sales and issuing. A member of the Calypso network association, Parkeon participated in implementing and deployment of the Calypso card in Ile de France and the surrounding region. More than 2600 automatic ticket dispensers and 2000 contactless barrier validators have been installed as part of a successful project.
The company’s advanced ticket vending machines are the cornerstone of ticket sales for the French regional transport network (TER and Transilien). During peak periods, each TVM handles up to 1000 transactions per day, so ensuring a fast and efficient throughput of passengers.
