Indra has won a contract to install its contactless ticketing systems in 13 stations of subway line 1 in Thessaloniki, Greece. The new solution is designed with the intention of providing easier access, customised rates and efficient data management.
The solution aims to provide a more comfortable and fast to access service since users will only need to place their cards close to the reader. In addition, mass data management will offer user rates adapted to their needs with smart cards providing a wider range of prices. Subway operators can also benefit with more reliable systems.
Indra will provide the engineering, design, development, testing and commissioning of all ticketing and access control technology (AFC-Automated Fare Collection). The project includes systems and machines for automatic ticket sales, access control systems, software, the central ticketing system, economic management systems and station control equipment.
