In July 2013 Cammax was awarded the contract to supply the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (Metro) with smart ticketing kiosks. The contract was awarded under a framework agreement which serves 10 transport authorities.
Following several months of design and development, the kiosks have now been successfully installed into the new high profile Park and Ride at Elland Road, Leeds.
The Park and Ride site was fast tracked to open in time for the arrival of the Tour de France 2014 and it is hoped that hundreds of cars will be removed from Leeds City centre as a result.
Leeds City Council’s executive board member for the economy and development, Counsellor Richard Lewis, said : “It is so simple to park up and jump on a bus as well as good value. We hope motorists will take this opportunity to leave their cars safely behind and enjoy a stress-free journey into the city.”
“Elland Road park-and-ride is set to remove hundreds of cars from Leeds city centre. We are committed to reducing congestion and pollution which this project will certainly help. It is just part of our upcoming plans to offer Leeds commuters more efficient and cheaper travel options.”
In a bid to increase the efficiency of the Park and Ride one of the key features is the 24hour Smart Ticketing kiosk provided by Cammax. The Smart ticketing kiosk provides Leeds commuters with the following benefits:
The ticketing kiosk will also allow commuters to use their ITSO Smart cards to access a range of products available on the kiosk. The simple to use interface will ensure a quick transaction at the kiosk ensuring queues are kept to a minimum. This will ensure that the members of the public using the Park and Ride facility will have a stress free and efficient way of entering the City Centre.
Cammax are very proud of this project and are committed to ensuring the continual development of Smart Ticketing kiosks. We are eagerly awaiting the next phase of kiosks to be rolled out with other Transport Executive groups.
