Thales Wins two New Train Fare Collection Contracts

Thales has signed two new train fare collection contracts covering 19 new stations on the Cairo metro. Both contracts are part of the Line 3 extension project: Phase 3 is the western branch of the line and includes 15 new stations, and Phase 4B is the eastern side of the line, with four stations.

The two new contracts follow earlier awards in December 2015 to upgrade the fare collection systems on Lines 1 and 2 of the Cairo metro.

Thales will build on this experience to deploy its latest TransCity TM systems into the existing infrastructure: 70 automatic vending machines, 177 ticket office machines, 50 portable ticket control terminals as well as 460 new-generation automated access gates, which will speed throughput and provide smoother passenger flows.

Thales has been contributing to the development of the Cairo metro for more than 30 years. These two new contracts, lasting more than 5 years (Phase 3) and more than 2 years (Phase 4B) respectively, underscore the continuing confidence of Egypt’s National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) in the Thales Group.

Cairo Metro

The Cairo metro is an efficient mass transit solution designed to significantly improve urban mobility in the Egyptian capital, contributing to sustainable development and helping to improve the quality of life. More than 4 million people will benefit from the Line 3 extension project.

Thales has been present in Egypt for more than 40 years and employs approximately 500 people (including joint ventures) in the country, 30 of whom are working exclusively on fare collection projects for the Cairo metro.
