How it works?

FerryONE is very simple to operate!


Buys a smart card ticket at ticketing office or wherever ferry company sells the tickets. Same card can be re-charged thousands of times by adding more value to the ticket. Cards FerryONE uses are secure, contactless smart cards.

Since smart card systems support portable SC (Smart Card) devices and off-line transactions it is possible to successfully charge smart ticket at any time, anywhere. No connections to Internet is required to charge smart tickets.

Passenger taps a smart ticket to the terminal (contact-less cards). Terminal processes the card, verifies it, charges a predetermined amount or checks against expiry date, beeps to confirm the fare and that's it. It takes less than second for all that. Fare is logged into internal log and process can be repeated again.


Uses ruggedized, handheld portable computer or tablet computer to handle passenger's smart tickets. In the beginning of working shift driver takes first available terminal waiting in charger. Before starting using a terminal driver logs into the terminal using his personal SAM control card or types in login info. From that moment terminal is set for that specific person, time and date, route, direction, default price to be charged to the passenger's smart tickets and price tables ready to be used.

That person stands at the entrance to ferry holding his portable device and passengers simply line up and tap their cards. Other way is when ferry is on it's way sailor goes around it and charges people's cards. Either way process is easy and fast.

Terminal sailor uses is Windows 10 based tablet PC equipped with smart card reader.


Owner of the system is effectively operating system from single PC. Operator can have multiple remote sales offices where smart tickets shall be sold to passengers, re-charged with more money (rides), set to have expiry date or simply created from blank, pre-printed smart cards. Same smart tickets pre-loaded with certain value could be distributed in variety stores or any kind of independent sales storefronts, even by person standing on the street corner or ferry port.

Operator running FerryONE Back-office edition is able to control issuance of driver's SAM cards, outflow of cards, incoming performance data, remote offices, re-sellers and much more. Easy to use Windows based software does administrative tasks easily eliminating errors, saving time and money in everyday operations. Handling cash is taken away from everybody and trusted to very few people where transactions are controlled by the software.

There are many ways operator can organize sales and make money with smart ticketing system. Initial system investment recovery is quick and savings created are long term. Almost every operator having people on deck or anywhere else handling cash is losing money in process!

Some prospects inquiring about FerryONE system measured daily loss at 60%-70% level! Don't that let happen to you and your ferry operations! Nobody can sustain that kind of losses and stay in business. Only way to prevent it is go full cashless. FerryONE is true smart cashless solution!

Record your passengers

In many places port authority demands ferry operators to maintain correct passenger's listings. Port Authority or Ministry of Transportation wants to know who was on the ship in case of accidents. It is burden and time consuming task for ferry operators. Fines for not fulfilling those requirements are hefty. Safety at sea is everybody's concern.

FerryONE solves that problem in very elegant way. Every smart ticket sold is personalized by name of the card holder. Every time when smart ticket is used system records passenger's full name. This is done seamlessly in background.

When boarding is done sailor in charge can send automatic e-mail to the PC in ferry operator's central office or to Port Authority. E-mail will contain list with all passengers.
