TBM delivers installation, repair, and maintenance for hardware to enable travelers to choose the smartest and easiest way to travel and pay for their journeys.

TBM specializes in hardware inventory management, supply, installation, repair, and ongoing maintenance of new and existing transit systems. TBM provides on-site management, operations support, patron support, business support/ analysis, and field services. 

Every year, more than 24 billion transportation payment transactions are processed using hardware devices and information systems worldwide. The devices that we currently maintain, and repair are Platform Validators, Bus Validators, CCTV (cameras), access management and control, Ticket Vending Machines, POS Units, and Enforcement handhelds.

We have the privilege to be the maintenance supplier for the following municipalities: Edmonton, St. Albert, Strathcona, Beaumont, Ft. Saskatchewan, Leduc, Spruce Grove, and Stony Plain.

This project is a 15-year contract that will allow these municipalities to move from cash and paper-based ticketing system to a common contactless fare payment system utilizing an account-based back office. The hardware will provide its citizens seamless and flexible access to public transportation, including the ability to pay with contactless EMV cards.
