SMART cards can be recharged and account histories accessed over the internet using Nextfare Web Services, from Cubic Transportation Systems.

Launched at the Card Tech conference in Las Vegas earlier this year, the software suite allows transit operators to offer customers a range of fare options and reward programmes.

Multiple operators can use the same card, with the payments allocated electronically. Interoperability with third parties means a customer could buy tickets to a sporting event or concert, and then use the smart card to gain access.
