VFJ, the smart card systems arm listed Omnitech, has won a smart card contract in Honolulu, Hawaii as part of a consortium bid with Schlumberger and a local integrator, Rising Tide.
VFJ will provide the equipment and readers, while Schlumberger will provide the cards. The solution will employ Philip's Mifare system.
Honolulu's bust network has 525 buses and about 280,000 passengers each week.
The Rising Tide consortium beat consortia that included the usual suspects in this market, including ERG and Cubic, to the contract.
