Overview

Building on the success of the original MetroCard Vending Machine, this compact sister machine offers the same design features: easy-to-use integrated hardware and software interface, friendly appearance, ADA compliance, vandal-resistance and durability. The machine is considerably smaller as it features a flat panel touch-screen and has no cash function, thus eliminating the need for the voluminous cash mechanism. The compact size allows for the hardware bezels to be closely grouped around the screen area. Provisions for a future contact-less smart card are designed into the machine.
