Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A NEW GENERATION of fare collection equipment, Autofare 3, from Control Systems, features single-key ticket issuing for popular fares. The use of a needle printer enables a ticket to be issued within one second of the command being given from the keyboard, at a machine which can be positioned well away from bus doors.

Autofare 3 is capable of doing more than improving passenger flow claims the manufacturer. Modular construction, microprocessor reliability and few moving parts make it easy and cheap to maintain. Faretable revisions can be programmed into memory in advance and called up when needed and changes in software are achieved by changing a programmed chip.

The City of Nottingham Transport Department is progressively replacing fare collection equipment on its fleet of 370 buses. Fast boarding times have long been a priority for Nottingham and nine years ago the Autofare 1 system, coupled with cash vault fare collection, was chosen to meet this need.

Nottingham is apparently confident that in Autofare 3 it has chosen a system capable of meeting the needs of a modern and efficient transport service for the years ahead.
