Ticket Vending Machine
MTA/Long Island Rail Road, Metro North Railroad

Overview

Hardware and interface design of the new Ticket Vending Machine (TVM) for New York City's two suburban commuter rails systems. Similar design criteria as the MetroCard machine, however the TVM needs to handle a complex fare table, including numerous combinations of parameters, such as origin/destination, peak/off-peak, senior/adult/child, combination and special seaso tickets. Being part of the same umbrella organization as the MetroCard machines, this machine features a recognizable MTA family look and feel for both hardware and screen interface while responding to the needs of a more extensive service palette.
