Gateway Ticketing Systems revolutionized ticketing for the North American bus industry when it introduced the first PC-based point-of-sale ticketing system that transformed the ticketing process from carbon forms to print-on-demand thermal tickets. Thirty years later, Quasar is the most recent generation of routing and fare engines, providing optimal intra- and interline itineraries for any trip, anywhere to anywhere.

“Our acquisition of this industry-leading technology will enable Transcor to better serve its customers as we continue to expand throughout the United States and abroad,” says Terry Cordell, Managing Member, Transcor Data Services, LLC. “We are very pleased that Gateway has selected us to take this technology to the next level.”

Michael Andre, Gateway’s President and Chief Executive Officer, added: “Transcor is dedicated to the transportation industry and their acquisition of Quasar is a natural fit. We’ve already been in touch with our small handful of customers affected by this news and assured them that we’d continue to support them and Transcor through the transition and beyond.”

Gateway will continue normal operations with its transportation customers using products that do not rely on Quasar technology.
