The current ticket sales system Prodata, based on magnetic stripe cards, was introduced in the early '90s. This system has now been industrial and functionally obsolete. Consequently, the operational reliability and a lack of spare parts for the system itself demand a replacing technology. This replacement will become a reality after the realization of the projects Bo and ReTi.
Bo stands for on-board computer; the project embraces the ultimate replacement of the current Prodata drivers console, the establishment of a communications network and the delivery of a number of support services that can be used by other projects.
ReTi stands for "Passenger registration and Ticketing"; the project embraces a new infrastructure for customer acquisition, sales, registration and ticketing, control, data collection and management and revenue management.
