About Genfare - Fare Collection Systems

Genfare offers solutions designed for several modes of transportation. We partner with transit agencies to develop road maps of where our agencies are today and where they want to be in the future. We are here at every step for the life of your fare collection system. From procurement and implementation through service and support, as new technologies emerge so does the accompanying service and support. This can be from one media to another to further enhance the rider experience or it can be integrating a new technology into your current fare collection system to maximize ridership.

Genfare has a legacy as a leader and innovator in the transportation industry throughout its long and successful existence. The company’s history stretches back to the 1880s with the invention of the first farebox. Over the years, Genfare has experienced a myriad of product releases, name changes, and headquarter changes but has remained the willing and caring innovator it has always been. With new goals and solutions, Genfare is ready to move forward and keep evolving as a leader in the transportation industry.
