Irish Rail Tickets

by msecadm4921

CIE Group, Ireland’s state owned transportation company, has selected Trintech’s bank-accredited PayWare Merchant to automate the processing of tickets purchased using a debit or credit card, via unattended ticket vending machines.

The vending machines are in DART and commuter railway stations with a roll out schedule to include mainline and regional stations in the coming months.

Ticket vending

Iarnrod Eireann, the Irish rail network, and Bus Eireann, the Irish bus network, will use PayWare Merchant to handle the high volumes of card transactions associated with seat reservations at ticket vending machines, booking offices, call centers and online. Iarnrod Eireann will also integrate and roll out Trintech’s Smart 5000 PINPad, a card reader that accepts chip cards and magnetic swipe cards. The Smart 5000 PINPad, is designed to meet the current and future demands of card acceptance and PIN entry at the point of sale, its makers say.

EU funding

As part of the Irish Government’s plan to maximize the use of public transport, CIE and its companies have been involved in investment funded from the National Development Plan plus EU co-funding. Part of this investment includes selection and roll out of unattended EMV Chip and PIN ready ticket vending machines. The new system will enable passengers to conduct Chip and PIN transactions at each unattended terminal. CIE are amongst the first to prepare for Chip and PIN in Ireland and report that they will switch on the Chip and PIN facility when the roll out schedule is complete.
