Abstract
The need for a precise revenue split within harmonised fare systems in public transport and disired reduction of passengers' fare knowledge and user-required actions can be met by automatic fare management systems. Such a system representing the final level of a three-step approach is described in this paper with the main focus on the contactless utilisation of an interoperable electronic purse. This has been for the first time realised by an electronic folder developed within the EC projects ICARE ad CALYPSO, which integrates a contactless ISO 14443 communication interface and a comprehensive user interface. Finally, an outlook of new opportunities with respect to fare systems and mobility management is given.
