Thales to install new fare collection on Cairo metro Line 3 extensions

Egypt’s National Authority for Tunnels (NAT) and Thales signed two new 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.
Thales will 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.
For Cairo metro, Thales has delivered and then upgraded the entire revenue collection system for Lines 1 and 2. The Group has also provided integrated communication and supervision solutions for Line 2, the first phases of Line 3 (2007 and 2009) and its subsequent extension (Phase 3).
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.
