Northamptonshire County Council smart concessionary pass system goes live

01 March 2008

The Northamptonshire Count Council (NCC) smart concessionary-pass system is now live using the ACT HOPS and managed services.

NCC was one of the first County Councils to independently finance the upgrade of their bus network to support smart ticketing. The project was launched in October 2010 with NCC supplying over 500 buses with smart ETMs, including their own managed in-house support for the council’s smaller operators.

ACT were selected to provide their ITSO compliant HOPS back-office managed service and worked closely with NCC and their suppliers to launch the new service smoothly.

The system currently processes over 0.5 million journey transactions per day and NCC is planning to expand the service to support their commercial operator ticket product, the "Buzzcard", later on in the year.
