Murcia University in southeast Spain, has tapped HID Global’s iCLASS technology to record its students who use the university’s bus system to travel around the university or between its two campuses.
The existing procedure required bus drivers to hand-count passengers and cross-reference that information to the number of cards sold. Drivers also needed to remember whether a student had already ridden the bus to prevent over-use of the transportation plan the student had purchased. Thanks to the iCLASS contactless smart cards issued to students and HID reader/writers installed in each bus, the student’s usage can be easily recorded. It also enables the driver to determine whether the student has exceeded his allotted bus trips. Additionally, the cards are personalized by the university and can be reprogrammed when the amount of transportation purchased expires.
