Edinburgh Tram project contracts Parkeon Transit

Parkeon Transit has been awarded a contract to provide ticketing for the Edinburgh Tram project, as part of the overall £742m budget.

The contract includes the supply and maintenance of Galexio-Plus ticket machines, Axio platform validators and hand-held payment terminals. The ticket machines will be enabled to read both ITSO cards and Lothian Buses’ Ridacard, linked to the existing back office.

Transport Convener Cllr Lesley Hinds said: “This contract is significant, not only because it will provide an integrated system for the city’s public transport network, but also because it’s the last significant contract to be let for the tram project.

“With testing now underway on the western side of the route and all contracts in place, I’m happy that things are progressing well and, along with the project team, I’m looking forward to a productive and successful 2013.”

Owen Griffith, managing director of Parkeon Transit: “This is a landmark project for Parkeon and reflects both our position as a market leader in delivering ITSO schemes and the inherent innovation that supports the development of our ticketing technology.”

Passenger services are expected to run by summer 2014 and it’s anticipated that full route tram testing will take place from Edinburgh Airport to York Place in late Spring 2014.
