The Bombela consortium, which operates the concession for the transport network, has through an open tender process chosen Thales to upgrade the fare collection system, installed in 2010 by the Group in time for the FIFA World Cup.

The TransCity solution will allow passengers to benefit from a wider range of services and ticketing options. In addition to the current Gold Card, travellers will be able to access the system using contactless smartcards issued by either South African or foreign banks. TransCity, the latest evolution in Thales's proven fare collection systems, brings users the benefits of web-oriented technologies, offering additional services to improve the passenger experience while simplifying day-to-day management tasks for operators.

The upgrade covers the entire Gautrain network including 10 express train stations, 9 station car parks and 125 buses, as well as the update of automatic ticket vending and top up machines, access gates and a new back office. The modernisation project will be rolled out progressively with no service disruptions and is due to be operational in 2017.

With operations on five continents, Thales is a global leader in fare collection solutions and services, particularly for public transport operators. Every year, Thalesís systems handle ticketing transactions worth 15 billion euros, installed in more than 100 cities around the world.

Key points
ē Thales's 2nd fare collection contract signed by Thales for the Gautrain network;
ē 1st ticketing export contract allowing payment with contactless EMV cards;
ē New multi-channel options for passengers: transport card, credit card.
