Thales Wins a €18.2 Million Train Control Contract in San Francisco

Thales, the world leader in innovative transportation solutions, was awarded a contract from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) for the design and construction of advanced train control technology for the new Central Subway project, an extension of the existing T Line.

Thales will supply its field-proven SelTrac® CBTC (Communications Based Train Control) Technology for the agency’s 1.7 mile extension of the T line, a solution designed to improve transit options for residents in one of the city’s most densely populated neighborhoods, provide a rapid transit link to a burgeoning technology and digital-media hub, and improve access to a premier commercial district and tourist attraction.

Thales SelTrac® CBTC Solutions

For SFMTA, the SelTrac® CBTC solution provides maximum performance in terms of headways, passenger throughput, and energy conservation. It knows the position of each train to a high degree of accuracy, which allows faster response times, more tightly controlled movements, and easier expandability and adaptability. In addition, the solution offers the opportunity to lower life-cycle costs and increase revenue by moving more people more quickly. For passengers, the SelTrac® CBTC system will result in safe operations and a more predictable commute.

Thales already supplies automatic train control technology for the Market Street subway in the SFMTA system; the award of this contract will ensure seamless integration and interoperability within the SFMTA.
