CONNECT Electronic Fare Payment System
Calgary Transit has cancelled the contract with the supplier for the development and delivery of its new electronic fare collection system.
Calgary Transit is disappointed this will mean a delay in providing an electronic fare collection system for customers with a reliable, secure and convenient electronic fare payment option.
The supplier has been unable to deliver a product that meets the requirements and timelines specified by Calgary Transit in the contract that was awarded December 16, 2010. Calgary Transit apologizes to our customers for this delay but we want to ensure that our customers have a quality system that they can rely on.
A new Request for Proposals will be released early in 2013 to secure a new vendor to provide the electronic fare collection system.
The timing for the introduction of an electronic fare collection system will be known after the new supplier is selected.
All traditional fare options (cash, tickets and monthly passes) remain available to our customers.
