Fare Collection Oversight Assistance

The purpose of this project is to develop additional modules for the Fare Revenue Interactive Electronic Workbook (Fare RevIEW)-a software program developed to assist transit officials to internally evaluate fare revenue control measures, and reduce the potential for fare revenue loss through theft or employee abuse of the internal processes. The original software program primarily dealt with automated fare collection methods. Most of the small urban and large rural systems do not have automated fare collection methods, and primarily provide paratransit and fixed-route-bus service. Under this project, a module will be developed that deal: specifically with the concerns and difficulties of smaller transit agencies with limited resources. Project deliverables will include: (1) enhancement of previously developed Fare RevIEW program to include electronic fare media, (2) refinement, testing and distribution of Fare RevIEW Program via CD-ROM, Internet, and other sources and, (3) A Transit Revenue Management Internal Control Manual linked to the format and structure of the Fare RevIEW computerized workbook, suitable to smaller systems. Project is funded under the National ITS Program, administered by the Department's ITS Joint Program Office.
