Ensure a fair distribution of revenue

In some regions, and for various historical, political, organisational or other reasons, multiple operators must share the operational management of a public transport network.
To make people’s lives simpler, however, transport organising authorities (AOT) put in place single transport fares or fares based on geographical zones, which do not necessarily correspond to a service offered by only one of the operators.
Generated revenue must therefore be distributed between the different operators in question. In the past, this distribution of revenue was organised on the basis of a manual counting campaign, however this data gave a very one-off view of the real passenger flow. As such, the funds that were paid to each operator could not be correct and fair.
Acorel’s high-precision automatic passenger counting solutions now make it possible to ensure a distribution of revenue based on tangible and reliable data, obtained over the entire period of usage. As such, each operator is able to record a turnover that corresponds to the actual services provided to the user. Thanks to the passenger flow video recording system and the maintenance services offered by Acorel, any company involved in the management of a transport network that is equipped with Acorel solutions may, at any point, verify the accuracy of the data generated by the counting system. They can therefore make sure that revenue is distributed fairly.
