City of Aurora Marries MIFARE and Pay-by-Plate for Metra Commuters

 Cale America Inc., a leading supplier of payment technology for parking and transportation, has announced its first U.S. installation of MIFARE contactless card technology paired with license plate based payments in the City of Aurora, IL. Installed and supported by Cale’s distribution partner, Total Parking Solutions, Inc., the new system allows Metra commuters to simply tap their Aurora MIFARE card and instantly pay for parking as they head to the train. The payment and parking session are linked to the vehicle license plate number which is stored on the MIFARE card. 

Joe Hopp, Superintendent of Maintenance Services for the City of Aurora explained that commuters love the convenience. “We have had almost 50,000 MIFARE card transactions since the program began in October last year. Adoption of the contactless cards has grown at a rapid pace,” said Joe. “Customers are now able to reload the cards easily at any pay station, and we expect many more commuters will prefer the convenience of tapping their card and getting on the train.”
