Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions

Can configure YOUR Electronic Ticket Machines

Are you frustrated by the time taken required by the Ticket Machine Company to supply your new Fares File (when routes have been amended or you undertake a fares increase)?

When you finally receive your new Fares File, do you find it is full of errors?

When new ticket classifications are required, do you find that the placement on the Ticket Machine's keyboard defeats the object of your original configuration?

Are you left to your own devices for the Depot Computers (configuring the ticket classifications)?

Do your Ticket Machines have "OPEN" keys?  Apart from "EXCESS" (which is easily monitored), all other classifications should be closed.  Do not be complacent - ALL fares should be programmed to stop unscrupulous employees "creaming off" your profits (if any)!

Another benefit of a closed system to the Management of a Bus Company is that you can rely on your data when you need to know precisely how your bus services are performing, reducing the need to employ staff or outside Companies to "survey" your services.  If you have the technology, why not use it to its fullest potential?

A closed system ensures that the correct boarding and alighting farestages are used by your Drivers, with the time displayed on the Driver's module information, you'll also learn whether they are running to time - perhaps you need to allocate more time to some journeys, or reduce the time on others.  Good quality information is a necessity in today's operating environment ... need we say more ?

If your Ticket Machine Company recommends "OPEN" keys in order for their programming errors to be corrected - you really should contact Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions by sending an E-Mail to (click the link):  help, or by leaving your details on the "CONTACT US" page.  Whichever you decide, a representative will contact you within 48 hours to offer advice.

Please note, operators will be required to keep their "Software Maintenance" contracts with their respective Ticket Machine Companies, as these are required to ensure your operating software is up to date.  If updates are not supplied free, they are usually offered at up to 50% off to Operators with a current "Software Maintenance" contract.

Perhaps your Company is considering converting to Electronic Ticket Machines and you would like a second opinion of the proposed configuration.

Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions

Can program YOUR fares onto Driver modules

Some ticket machine companies spend a very small amount of time with you once you have made your costly purchase.  Often, you are so worried about the introduction of your new hardware, any training supplied has just not been absorbed!

Don't worry, that's why Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions is here!

Simply supply us with your Farecharts/Faretables/Farecards (the document which the Driver reads to ascertain a passenger's particular fare) and we can take care of the rest.

If you are a small operator and need advice regarding farecharts, or need these producing for you - we can do this too!

Please contact Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions by sending an E-Mail to (click the link):  help, or by leaving your details on the "CONTACT US" page.  Whichever you decide, a representative will contact you within 48 hours to offer advice.

Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions

Can service YOUR Wayfarer Electronic Ticket Machines

When you have purchased your equipment, the warranty covers the first year.

After this period, you may wish to consider the ticket machine company's on site maintenance package (usually more than 50 per machine, annually), or simply wait until one of your ticket machines actually fails, before returning it to the manufacturer.

Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions recommends that ink bobbins (where appropriate) are changed at least twice per year, at which time the machine should be checked over, just to ensure all is OK.

At the same time, a quick clean will restore your machines to looking like new and your Driving staff will feel good about the machines, again - as they are reliable and do not jam after every couple of tickets!

Preventative maintenance is always cheaper in the long run!

Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions doesn't hold any spare parts at the moment, however with 10 years of experience repairing and servicing Wayfarer 2 and 3 ticket machines, our expert knows these machines inside out and will advise the precise part which is faulty.  Most ticket machine companies send out parts on the same day, which reduces the need for tying up capital in such items.

It is envisaged that  Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions will be able to support other brands of ticket machines in the future, as more companies start to make use of our services.

Our expert can also repair mechanical Setright and Almex 5 or 6 band ticket machines.

Please contact Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions by sending an E-Mail to (click the link):  service, or by leaving your details on the "CONTACT US" page.  Whichever you decide, a representative will contact you within 48 hours to offer advice.

PLEASE NOTE:  We do NOT stock parts for Electronic Ticket Machines.  If you require parts or parts lists, please contact your ticket machine manufacturer (see "Links" page).

Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions

Can produce YOUR farecharts or faretables

 It doesn't matter whether you have mechanical or electronic ticket machines, the Driver of every Registered Local Bus Service in the United Kingdom MUST have a farechart or faretable which can be shown to a passenger on demand.

They can be handwritten, but they MUST be available!

With 16 years experience producing some extremely complex farecharts and advising Drivers of "Conditions and Pass Validity" at a Bus Company based in South East England, our expert will be able to advise or produce a document which your Drivers will understand.

Perhaps your Company is in need of an overhaul to simplify its fares structure.

Our expert's 22 years experience in fares has seen the use of flat, graduated, zonal and mileage based structures.

"Transfer" tickets are normally issued when two popular points are not covered by a direct bus service.  If not policed correctly, transfer tickets can be used like a Day Rover (or an all day ticket), resulting in lost revenue.  In the case of a return "transfer" ticket, if all FOUR journeys are catered for on the ticket issued (ie each journey requires a "clip" or "punch" on the ticket), this significantly reduces fraudulent use.

With Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions, you are assured that our staff will offer and deliver a quality service.  If you listen to our advice, your ticketing structure will be very secure ensuring that no employees can *easily "cream off" your profits! - However, we will respect your wishes!

* - Electronic Ticket Machines with programmed fares offer less opportunity for the unscrupulous members of staff who are set on eating away at your profits!  With mechanical ticket machines, the Driver has to set the fare manually, therefore these are less secure.

Please contact Electronic Ticket Machine Solutions by sending an E-Mail to (click the link):   farechart, or by leaving your details on the "CONTACT US" page.  Whichever you decide, a representative will contact you within 48 hours to offer advice.
