Araras equips bus fleet with facial biometric system, Brazil [free access]

October 4, 2019

The municipality of Araras, in the state of Sao Paulo, has announced plans to equip its entire bus fleet with facial biometrics systems by the end of this week to identify fraudulent use of the service by passengers who enjoy fare discounts.


Passengers are required to register on the system, failing which the card will be blocked and the fare will have to be paid in cash. Although there are different deadlines for re-registering for free pass users and regular fare passengers, the upgrade is mandatory for everyone.
