DataPoint Manual Fare Entries

Your DataPoint application, located in ETMS in the Operations product suite, is used for a variety of scheduling-related tasks. Use this application to manually enter fare information for cases when vehicles are not connected to your ITS system, and you need a way to document and reconcile collected fares from revenue service. After these are manually documented in DataPoint, the data becomes available for exceptions processing in myAvail as the final reconciliation process. Follow the steps below to use this feature.
