Amsterdam Metro network’s new North/South line is set to receive Thales next-generation ticket gateway to improve passenger flow and reduce use of equipment while ensuring enhanced security at an optimised cost.

The latest contract stems from an order signed for the design and realisation of Amsterdam Metro’s supervision network in 2013.

The nearly 10km-long line covers seven metro stations and has a capacity to carry around 180,000 passengers on a daily basis.

Around 153 ticket gates and 45 ticket vending machines will be installed and equipped by Thales along the North/South line.

"The new supervision network monitors passenger information systems."

The company will also provide maintenance and support for both projects for a period of ten years.

Thales’s ticket gate features a single 3D camera that replaces several different beam sensors used on traditional ticket gate models.

The new supervision network monitors passenger information systems, control of power generation systems, e-ticketing and security cameras.

Thales implemented the first nationwide fare collection system from 2005 to 2009 in the Netherlands.

The fare collection system allows passengers to travel by train, bus, tram or metro anywhere in the country using the same contactless smart card.

Dutch public transport users have sold more than 17.9 million contactless smart cards to date, and completed 42 million transactions per week.

Thales also provides transport solutions and services such as signalling for urban rail and main line, integrated communications and supervision, and fare collection systems.
