DETROIT–Diversified Data Processing and Consulting Inc., which does business as DivDat, announced ongoing support of its customer, the Detroit Department of Transportation and its riders, by providing new self-service walk-up Bus Pass Dispensers that allow DDOT customers to buy bus passes by cash or card, receive instant payment confirmation and a printed official receipt.
Reduced fare passes are available for eligible riders to purchase via DivDat’s Bus Pass Dispenser-equipped Kiosks. More than 2,000 DDOT bus passes have been purchased and distributed since DivDat’s Bus Pass Dispenser was first made available on a limited basis, in December 2022.
DivDat’s self-service bill payment kiosks, equipped with adjacent bus pass dispensers, are available for DDOT transit pass purchase (including reduced fare passes) at the Rosa Parks Transit Center and at the Detroit Health Department station at 100 Mack Ave. in Detroit.
The Detroit Department of Transportation is the largest public transit provider in Michigan, serving the city of Detroit, its surrounding suburbs, and neighboring cities. DDOT provides service to an average of 85,000 riders daily. Acting on feedback from users, DDOT partnered with DivDat to develop and implement the bus pass dispenser adjunct to its bill payment kiosks in an effort to provide additional self-service options to consumers.
DivDat, formed in 1971 and based in Detroit, serves corporations, municipalities, utility companies, courts, and quasi-governmental entities. DivDat’s proprietary payment technologies span indoor and outdoor payment kiosks, web interfaces, IVR/phone payment options, mobile app, and point of service modules facilitating in-person payments made to cashiering representatives.
