MISC | Automatic Fare Collection Gates In Your City's Metro

Automatic Fare Collection Gates In Your City's Metro
How do the ticketing gates that you use to enter and exit your city's metro station look like? Also, how do the ticket vending machines look like? Do note that this thread is for ticketing gates & vending machines ONLY, and does not include barrier free systems which have no physical barrier between the unpaid and paid areas of the station.

The standard ticketing machine on the Taipei MRT



Contactless Easy Card Refill / Purchase Machine




Easy Card Balance Machine.. Displays the past debits on your card (time / location)



Ticketing Gates







The EasyCard itself (back)


And of course.. here's a clever way to clear the turnstile. Contactless EasyCard in wallet in pocket a jump and you're through!

Hong Kong's KCR
KCR is technically not a metro like the MTR.

KCR is more like a commuter rail.

Here's a picture of London Underground I found. The ones looks pretty much the same, just a little shinier:


Here's a picture of Toronto's TTC subway from Transit Toronto, a simple turnstile design.

Tokyo


Ticket Barriar (photo: JR)

- You can insert two prepaid cards altogether for the fare adjustment.
- Doesn't matter in which side of the ticket you insert. The machine can absorb and read the ticket however the way you put it in unless you make it wet or bend it.
- The barriars always stay open but will close if you try to cheat.
- You can come from both sides of the barriar. So there's no entrance or exit side.
- Rechargeable smart card ("Suica" for JR Lines, Tokyo Monorail and The 3rd sector Rinkai Line) and Prepaid Card (for Subways and the other rails except the ones mentioned earlier) are also available.



This is how you use the smart card "Suica".


Ticket Vendor (photo: Tokyo Metro)

- Touch Panel
- The machine vends out both bank notes and coins for change.



Ticket (photo: Tokyo Metro, single)


Various types of prepaid card "Passnet"


Smart Card Suica (with the credit card function)

I forgot, another thing. You can also use mobile phone, which has a built in Felica terminal (as a part of the smart card technology) to go through the barriar.

Also the panel for the smart card

hmm, sorrry but what's the name of this station? When I travelled in HK last year, I didn't see such an automatic gate in the MTR stations (especially HK's most important Island Line and Tseun Wan Line)
I only saw the one like Taipei (I had to push down the annoying bars manually at all the gates of MTR!!!)

Turnstile is what I hate most. I cannot understand the reason lots of cities in the world have adopted such an outdated facility (primitive system) so far! It has a disadvantage for everyone, especially for the physically handicapped, the pregnant, and the person with baggage.

I see your point.. but that's also why there are special gates for the people who need them.
