ORANGES BEAR FRUIT : COMMUTERS IN THE US' CENTRAL FLORIDA REGION HAVE TESTED COMBINED SMARTCARD PAYMENT FOR TOLLS, TRANSIT, AND PARKING

Orlando Regional Alliance for Next Generation Electronic payment Systems (ORANGES) is a smart card-based shared payment technology project in Florida. Having undergone a successful one year field operational test, the system is considered to be the first one in the U.S. combining the multiple payment applications of separate toll, public transit, and parking garages into a single non-cash payment system. This article describes how ORANGES was implemented on the Holland East plaza in Orlando, Florida. It gives an overview of the how system worked, and discusses the charging system and the various payment programs that were in place. A long-term vision for ORANGES is one that includes a multi-functional electronic payment system featuring seamless regional operation as well as having the capability of handling commercial purchases such as fuel and small retail items.
