A word about Fare Components in the Hudson System

When it comes time for a client add a charge, fee, discount, tax or other financial item to their Hudson system, Hudson uses what are termed Fare Components to configure that item, based on how the item will be assessed, invoiced, paid, etc.

Here is a list of the Fare Components currently available in the HGTS suite of applications and a brief description of how each item is used.  NOTE: The Fare Component labels below may be changed and overridden by the client so that it will appear with whatever text / name is desired.  For Example: A fare component label of “Service Charge” may be adjusted so that it appears as “STC”, “Service Transportation Fee”, etc.  The list is displayed in the following format:

[Fare Component] - [Type] - [Brief Description]


The “Total Fare” charged to a client after service provided is the result of the compilation of the fare components below.
