Pittsburgh’s fareboxes ready for testing

The Port Authority of Allegheny County (PA) has finished installing new fareboxes on its buses and rail vehicles and is ready for 300 students and employees of the University of Pittsburgh to begin field-testing the system. University ID cards have chips that are compatible with the new fareboxes and, as part of the test, the university will deactivate 25 cards each week to simulate students who have graduated or left the university. That will enable the port authority to verify that the new fareboxes can recognize the invalid cards. Link to full story in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
