Indra has announced it will lead a consortium to supply the Kuala Lumpur Monorail with a new contactless ticketing system
Indra, an IT company based in Spain, will team up with Malaysia’s Iris to design, supply, and implement the €4.4 million system, which will include new access control equipment and automated and manual ticket sale devices.
The system will also call for new multiple-trip contactless smart cards for regular users, as well as tokens for one-way trips.
This project joins the previous contract awarded to Indra in 2010 to implement the access control and ticketing systems on the Kelana Jaya and Ampang railway lines in Malaysia’s capital, according to Indra.
The company has previously deployed its technology on the Calcutta Metro, Mumbai Monorail and Underground system and in the new light rail underground train to Delhi airport.
