Wolf, Jerry . 2000. Field Evaluation of Electronic Fee-Collection Machines for Forest Service Recreation Sites. 0023 2844. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Missoula Technology and Development Center. 16 p.
Describes electronic fee-collection systems used at Forest Service recreation sites. These systems have not been used long enough for a thorough assessment of their strengths and weaknesses. Factors to be considered when deciding whether to use electronic fee-collection equipment include: amount of revenue to be generated, risk of vandalism, availability of power, climate, fee-collection plan, and operating personnel. Contact information and specifications for three electronic fee collection machines (Lexis, VenTek, and QBS) are included.
