VinnytsiaCartServis (VCS), a municipal company in the City of Vinnytsia, has received a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the Bank or EBRD) to finance the introduction and implementation of automated fare collection (AFC) system on public transport in Vinnytsia. The proposed project, which has an estimated value of up to EUR 9 million will require the procurement of the following goods, works and services to be financed from the proceeds of the Bank’s loan:

In addition it is desirable to implement an Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) system so that vehicle movements can be tracked and arrival times anticipated, and therefore enable more effective service management and real time data for passengers.

The system is to operate on approximately 100 trams, 150 trolleybuses and 300 buses operated by the Vinnytsia Transport Company and approximately 250-300 minibuses and taxis operated by other licensed providers. In addition, the AFC system may be used to support payment for future city services, such as parking; the card system is also to act as a citizen card providing access to selected city facilities.

The AFC system scope may include, but is not limited to:
