For the first time in human history more people live in cities than in the countryside. Given the increasing density of settlement and rising environmental pollution only a powerful public transport network can sustainably meet the mobility needs of urban inhabitants.

Magnetic offers numerous solutions that enable you to design public transport processes that are both quicker and safer.

Millions of commuters and pedestrians are consistently recorded and checked every day by our passenger barriers for ticket inspection and automatic fare collection (AFC gates). We thus make a major contribution towards shortening transfer times, guiding individuals at urban hubs, and efficiently collecting fares.  

We have been working for many years with traffic companies, railway station operators and system integrators worldwide, and have gained comprehensive experience of the planning, installation and maintenance of access and ticket inspection systems in public transport.

A selection of our products for public transport


The MPR pedestrian gate has been specially developed for AFC-related applications and ensures rapid, non-contact and user-friendly checking of tickets in public transport. The extremely short flap opening time of 0.3 seconds and the simple installation of multiple applications are the prerequisite for inspecting travellers’ tickets reliably and fully automatically even during peak periods. The integrated control unit can be operated with all ticket systems and used in both directions.

To the products


The secure parking of bicycles is of special importance for the successful switch to regional and long-distance public transport systems. The MPB turnstile with its bicycle gate is the optimum solution for access control at bicycle parking facilities. When the presence of a bike is detected via the induction loop, the swing gate automatically opens when the rider enters the turnstile – freeing the path for the bicycle. Operation of the turnstile can be regulated with all common access control systems.
