A secondary validator includes a communications interface with a first antenna and a second antenna having a shorter signal range than the first antenna. The validator also includes a processor and a memory having instructions that, when executed by the processor cause the validator to receive, using the first antenna, vehicle information from a first vehicle that is within a signal range of the first antenna. The vehicle information includes route information associated with the first vehicle. The validator provides an indication for a passenger that has exited the first vehicle to check out, reads checkout information from a fare media using the second antenna, detects another vehicle present within a signal range of the first antenna, and provides the checkout information and at least a portion of the transit vehicle information to a primary validator positioned on the another vehicle for subsequent transmission to a transit system back office.
