SEPTA (Philadelphia) launches 3D fare gates pilot with Conduent

  • Date: 05/20/2024

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (Septa) has launched a three-month pilot with Conduent Transportation to stop fare evasion on its transit network - which costs $30 million to $40 million annually.

Conduent’s 3D Fare Gate Solution is installed at a transit station in the Philadelphia area - the 69th Street station in Upper Darby, for riders traveling on the Market-Frankford and Norristown High Speed lines.

The gates - which were also installed in Paris by Transilien SNCF in 2019 - are 7' 8" tall and Septa plans to roll them out at other stations, including those with high reported incidents of fare evasion.

The solution uses 3D detection optical sensors, allowing travellers fast and convenient access, Conduent says - while detecting and deterring ticketing fraud.
