LECIP sells fareboxes to California bus system
BENSENVILLE -- LECIP Inc. has been awarded a contract for the replacement of the cash fare collection system on Breeze buses serving North San Diego County in California.
Beginning in early 2022, LECIP will deliver and install the new cash fare collection system for the North County Transit District. The new fareboxes will provide an easier and quicker way for riders to pay their fare, resulting in enhanced convenience for Breeze passengers, the company said.
LECIP, established in Japan in 1953, has a manufacturing facility and U.S. headquarters in Bensenville. The company supplies transit and rail equipment for buses, trains and automobiles.
The new farebox project also features a cloud based back-office system and software. Maintenance and support services on this back-office system will be provided for at least 10 years, which will enhance the transit district's accessibility to daily transaction data and allow for efficient system management, LECIP said.
"We are excited to have another footprint on the West coast with this important project," said Akio Fujii, CEO of LECIP Inc., a subsidiary of Japan-based LECIP Holdings Corp.
