Holiday at last! The most wonderful time of the year for many people is the holiday season. Time out from the daily grind. Away from the hustle and bustle, and stress. Straight into enjoyment!

So that holiday guests in cities as well as skiing and walking resorts can reach their desired destination quickly and, most important of all, safely, public transport - touristic transport - is being used. AXESS creates controlled access to holiday fun with its access management systems. Quick, safe and efficient.
Transport of tomorrow
Cable cars, the transport of tomorrow, are being preferred in cities to ease the traffic on streets and public transport. This has clear advantages: They are environmentally-friendly and soundless. We, as an innovative and forward-looking company, are supporting this trend with state-of-the-art access systems and efficient ticketing management. Because it is only if everyone pulls together that the visions for the future will become a reality.Read more
Efficient: Ticketing & access control for touristic transport
Axess systems enable flexible tariff models and an exact, performance-based deduction based on time or frequency. Axess system modules can therefore be found in many areas of public and stationary traffic. RFID tickets, barcode tickets and 2D barcodes on a smartphone are the norm for professional ticketing.
Best Practice: Touristic transport in Venice
Axess provides more than 100 Smart Gates NG with the option Flap paddle arm (“Innovation Award 2012” of Salzburg Economic Chamber) for more than 30 landing stages which enable a barrier-free and comfortable access to the main transport in Venice, the “vaporetto”.
The Axess Smart Flap Gates are perfect for public transport. The efficient and comfortable access system prevents the widely practiced phenomenon of “fare dodging” as early as in the station. Without a ticket, it is not possible to use the desired transport.

Venice attracts around 30 million tourists a year – a huge influx of visitors which ACTV must bring efficiently and quickly to the desired destinations. Axess is now making a significant contribution to this effort by realizing its biggest public transport project in one of the most visited cities in Europe.
In March 2014 Axess won the public tender for the urban public transport company ACTV (Azienda Consorzio Trasporti Veneziano) and provided around 30 landing and bridge segments which are approached by using the main transport in Venice, the "Vaporettis", with more than 100 Smart Gates NG with the option Flap paddle arm (“Innovation Award 2012” of Salzburg Economy).
Axess Smart Flap Gates - ideal for public transport
Axess is providing the ACTV with a very efficient and comfortable system of access that effectively prevents the widespread phenomenon of "dodgers" at the stations. Also, the design of the Axess Smart Gates with their overhead installation is perfect for surviving the "acqua alta" which regularly floods parts of Venice. Due to the increased width of the Axess Gates, tourists can easily pass the access points with their baggage.
Axess review of a successful cooperation in Venice
Already with the implementation of the "People Movers" in 2010, the cable-drawn system (connection Island Tronchetto with Piazzale Roma), commissioned by the ASM, as well as the installation of 20 Axess Smart Gates NG Flap and a total of 9 AX500 TVM (vending machines), Axess successfully contributed in ensuring a smooth transport of tourists at three locations.
But that's not all: In collaboration with Teleart, already in 2006/2007 all museums in Venice were already equipped in 2006/2007with AX500 Satellite Readers, a ticket control system that makes visiting a museum easy.
