Turnstiles for Public Transportation. Subway. Train. Airports.

Hayward Turnstiles is a top turnstile manufacturer and trusted supplier to the transit industry for more than 50 years. The public transportation industry is an extremely high-volume industry with room to grow as nations become more urbanized. In fact, Americans took 10.1 billion trips on public transportation in 2017 alone. People in America board public transportation over 35 million times daily. They depend on these public modes of transportation, like subway, bus, and commuter train systems, to get them around cities or towns and even across state lines. Though this industry deals with transportation, managing the large influxes of people traffic is an equally important challenge.

Challenges. Access Control and Security. Public Transportation.

Public transportation stations create many access control and security challenges. They often have many entrances, a large number of people, and constantly changing traffic flows. These stations must process tickets and get customers to their correct terminals in an efficient and orderly time to avoid backup and delays. This is an extremely difficult task during rush hour when the peak levels of traffic are experienced. Every day these stations run the risk of entrants stealing free rides and exploiting the system under as they blend in with crowds. Pickpockets, terrorists, and other ill-wishing criminals all prey on highly populated public areas, and public transportation stations provide the perfect environment for wrongdoing.

Solutions for Access Control and Security. Public Transportation

Because of the extremely high volume of people traffic encountered in the public transportation industry, many subway stations and bus terminals (among others) implement turnstile access control systems. Turnstiles provide a fully automated means of checking patrons’ tickets while simultaneously locking out unauthorized entrants out. This functionality is perfect for public transportation as it would be incredibly difficult and time-consuming to check each patrons’ ticket by hand. Waist high tripod turnstiles provide dependable functionality at an affordable price. They are used in many public transportation terminals. In fact, you have probably passed through one if you ever used the New York City subway system or Boston’s T. For even higher-risk stations, full height turnstiles are used. Working like revolving doors, they span from floor to ceiling and are impossible to breach when locked. Finally, optical turnstiles are used for stations that experience extremely high traffic or those that would like to keep a sleek, modern look. These turnstiles use optical lasers to detect passage withing swinging, retracting, or drop arm barriers. They work extremely fast and fit right in with modern architecture. No matter which type you choose, any of these three subway turnstiles will save your station money by eliminating extra workers and keeping people traffic controlled and safe.
