Automatic Toll Collection System(ATCS) is an essential part of improved and upgraded form transportation systems, which represents the innovative technologies, used in our day-to-day life. In this paper, we aim at suggesting an open and secure eticketing system, which acts as an alternative to the conventional paper,based ticketing. Our solution is based on NFC, which will facilitate its interoperability with value-added services and from the third party services as well. NFC smartphones or tags used in this system is a new impeccable approach. The proposed system will use NFC enabled mobile phones either in card emulation or peer-to-peer mode for exchanging data and for validating tickets for instance. We also propose a solution for both NFC enabled and nonenabled mobile phones. This paper provides an overview about the major problems, discusses advantages and disadvantages of the new approach, and finally concluding with implementation of this idea
