Wellington, New Zealand

Wellington, New Zealand (2008)

Background

New Zealand developed “cost-effective” Smartcard based payment system for Wellington.

KSCC’s Role

Contract with Snapper which runs officially Wellington’s smartcard business.

Result

The bus solution being implemented now in Wellington and operating more than 400 buses is wholly consistent with the philosophy of quick boarding and focusing the bus driver’s attention on operating the bus safely, reliably and courteously. A state-of-the-art touch screen bus driver console handles the driver’s sign-on, dispensing of receipts to cash-paying customers and counting of riders who present paper passes or multi-ride tickets, and controlling the card validator for smartcard users. Seoul’s smart transportation card system’s excellence has been globally acknowledged, bench-marked and actually introduced by many other countries. New Zealand was our first global reference as KSCC. After completing system delivery, KSCC has been working as a settlement agent(delegation). KSCC serves as a ASP for the New targeted market, where settlement data are transferred back to the clearing center located in KSCC’s head quarters, and the settlement reports are provided 9AM following working day.
