Highlights

  • Accepts contactless fare media
  • Enables rear-door boarding
  • Reduces operator intervention

Simplified

The Open Link Validator enables the introduction of electronic media in conjunction with existing fareboxes and operator control units. It can be mounted in front and rear boarding areas on a stanchion or bulkhead, and can be linked when multiple are used on a vehicle.

Empowered

Designed for easy maintenance, the OLV performs a self-test when powered up and monitors internal components while in operation. If external power is lost, a backup power source enables the transaction in progress to complete.

Connected

Fare structure changes, device configuration, and transaction reporting are available through integration with Genfare Link®, Genfare’s cloud-hosted fare processing platform. Any errors or warnings are also transmitted via Ethernet or Wi-Fi to Genfare Link® to notify maintenance staff.
