Smart Columbus issues RFP for Common Payment System

The City of Columbus (City) is seeking to acquire and implement a Common Payment System (CPS) to allow users to pay for multimodal trips and parking options from a single account. This account will be linked to various payment media and User preferences. The CPS will provide Travelers with a single, common platform that integrates with the Multimodal Trip Planner Application (MMTPA) that provides end-to-end trip-planning across all modes of transportation, both public and private. The CPS will allow booking, electronic ticketing and payment services for use by the trip planner as well as for other applications that want to allow their users to access the common shared account. The CPS will be developed to handle payments to parking providers for garages and surface lot parking. Integration with the Event Parking Management (EPM) Central System will interface with the CPS for payment processing. Travelers will be able to interact with the CPS system via the mobile or web application to pay for parking, add funds to their CPS account and receive reservation codes.
