Indra to Implement Tickecting System in Setif
Alstom Transport has commissioned Indra to develop and implement the ticketing systems for the new tramway line currently under construction in the Algerian city of Setif. The contract amounts to 4.2 million euros.
Indra will supply the ticketing systems for the 27 stations and four interchanges planned for the first section of the line, which is 16.2 km long, as well as the validation equipment for the first 26 trams of a total fleet of 39 vehicles.
The system will be used to process and manage both magnetic tickets and contactless cards simultaneously. As an open system it will also guarantee interoperability with the payment systems of other types of transport and multi-operator management since different companies will be able to use the system.
With a total length of 22.2 km, the Setif tramway line project is being undertaken by Entreprise du Métro d’Alger (EMA), which has subcontracted the construction and equipment to the consortium formed by Alstom Transport and the construction company Yapi Merkezi.
