      Dear UTCoP members,


      A few weeks ago I was corresponding with Pranab Nanda, who wishes to learn more about the fare policies of large, unified transit systems of global cites, especially those found in London, Seoul, Singapore, and Hong Kong.  Specifically, he is interested in fare setting mechanisms, and what the processes for determining the exact fare entail; the role smart fare cards such as London's "Oyster Card" play in system integration; and, in the case of unified metropolitan transport authorities such as Transport for London (TfL), how revenue is distributed or shared between the constituent transport agencies.


      If anyone has any relevant working experience in this matter, knowledge of the issues, or knows of any reputable contacts who might be better able to direct his query, please respond!


      Praveen Kumar P, I saw that you have experience in fare collection and managing the smart card infrastructure of Chennai Metro Rail; would you be able to discuss some of these questions with Pranab?
