Tecnología de Identidad y Seguridad, Tarjetas Inteligentes e Identificación

Celulares en lugar de boletos de tránsito en Chicago

Viernes, 29 de mayo de 2009

La Autoridad Regional del Transporte de Chicago, la cual desarrolla un moderno sistema de boletos que le permite a los pasajeros pagar con tarjetas de crédito sin contacto, piensa expandir ese servicio para incluir también teléfonos celulares NFC.

“Pienso que es una de las tecnologías más prometedoras que hay ahora”, comenta Joseph Moriarty, analista principal de RTA. “Hay más personas usando un celular que tarjejtas de débito o crédito”.


Una vez implementado, el sistema puede extenderse a otros sistemas de tránsito del país, lo que significaría que un celular es todo lo que un pasajero necesitaría para tener acceso al transporte en San Francisco, donde ya se probó la NFC, o Chicago. No se necesitará ni efectivo, ni pase, ni boletos de papel.

Contract changes and expirations have caused a crunch for University of Chicago students looking to top up their ID cards with laundry funds.

The University removed cash-to-card machines from residence halls at the beginning of this academic year, leaving students with just two locations at which they can reload their ID cards for laundry. Now, rather than having machines located in residence halls, the students must report to two central locations, a campus convenience store and Bartlett Hall, a highly trafficked building that contains a dining hall, and other student resources.
