Abstract

Operator mark sense cards used for manual ticketing of operator-assisted calls may be practically eliminated by the use of this system which assembles formatted records on magnetic tape or diskette. The system allows existing electromechanical toll-ticketing systems to accept credit card and special instruction calls, and performs a toll recording function on an existing toll system.
