Embodiments of the invention(s) described herein enable a system that may rely on a biometric identifier entry validation system. The validation system "learns" the use pattern of a user. The validation system uses biometric methods such as facial recognition, palm veins, and thumb prints as an entry or passage token. When enough data has been collected, the validation system sends the user's biometric identifier to the use location within a bounded time frame when it expects a regular user to arrive at that location and within that time frame. In this manner the biometric identifier becomes a biometric token that replaces the need to use a form of fare media. Thus, the validation system becomes more efficient and recognizes a user faster after collecting data of a user for a short time. The validations system can record and interpret historic data. With this data, the validation system knows, on average, when to expect that passenger to arrive and where.
