Contactless Ticket Validators for the Automatic Fare Collection System of Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) in US.

AMCO supplied onboard contactless validators, as a subcontractor of the Illinois-based company AmericanEagle, for the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA) which is the public transportation provider for the Memphis area.

The onboard validators are designed and manufactured by AMCO in Greece, featuring the latest industry standards in contactless smart cards, NFC and QR codes.

“The new fare collection system provides an opportunity for MATA to improve how it delivers transit services to its customers and offers additional options to passengers in order to provide a more modern and customer-friendly experience,” said Gary Rosenfeld, Chief Executive Officer at MATA. 

As one of the largest transit operators in the state of Tennessee, MATA transports customers in the City of Memphis and parts of Shelby County on fixed-route buses, paratransit vehicles and vintage rail trolleys.
