To dispense the large volume of short-trip tickets required on Japanese National Railways, automatic ticket vending machines have been introduced. In major stations, group control systems have been developed to coordinate change supply, coin collection by means of conveyors, automatic counting and logging of sales. Two systems are used, a small-scale one for controlling less than ten machines and a larger one for more than ten vending machines. One operator can supervise large banks of these machines efficiently.
