Objectives: The article discusses the development of automated payment systems of public transport fare and accounting of passengers. The main objective of the study is a creation of the concept, which allows us to take into account the practical difficulties of collecting fare, electronic monitoring of passenger traffic and control of public transport routes. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: Design of the automated systems is based on analysis of business process chains and their gradual decomposition. The basis of the study approach is developed from the hypothesis about a universal technical and economic solution that allows us to integrate the autonomous elements of the system. The authors summarize the international experience in the development of similar systems in order to create the best practices. Findings: The study worked out the general principles of the automated fare systems in transport. The paper presents the form of deployment, describes typical solutions for the design and gives an example of its practical implementation. The authors specified a composition of business processes in the system operation at various stages. To assess the implementation prospects, the SWOTanalysis was carried out for the electronic accounting systems of the passenger traffic by using state and multiple vendors’ fare cards. Application/Improvement: The results of the comparative study of the automated systems made it possible to complement the existing concept with internal control components for autonomous elements. The authors suggested the introduction of “stop list” units between synchronization intervals in the implementation of fare transactions, as well as differential risk transfer for the fare fixing by the system users.
