Verification of correct fare at alighting

Validation at alighting is used to verify that passengers have paid the correct fare for the trip undertaken in a graduated fare system, and that over-riding beyond the last valid stop for the ticket has not occurred. This approach supports the capture of all legitimate revenues and minimizes passenger fraud. It also demonstrates publicly that the operator takes seriously that everybody pays the correct fare on the system.

It is important that information on the requirement and processes for fare validation at alighting is clear, prominent and easy to understand.
