Thales to supply passenger information solution for the Jaipur Metro

Thales has signed a contract with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (DMRC), responsible for implementation of the new Jaipur Metro, to supply an advanced passenger information system. This latest contract follows the successful delivery and implementation of the solution for Phases 1, 2 and 3 of the New Delhi Metro network.

The Jaipur Metro is a rapid transit system under construction in the city of Jaipur, India. Once completed, it will be one of the largest metro rail systems after those in Kolkata, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. The first line (east-west) will cover 12 km from Mansarovar to Badi Chaupar and will have eight elevated and three underground stations. It will be commissioned in 2013.

The Thales passenger information system will be interfaced with the traffic management system and will provide accurate visual and audio information to enhance customer comfort and security. The solution will use a single software platform to enable the Jaipur Metro to generate and distribute real-time traffic-related information across the network. It will include an integrated and synchronised audio passenger announcement system, a visual passenger information system and a time information system to keep passengers informed throughout their journeys, whether on platforms, in trains or at connections with other lines on the network.

Prashant Rao, Chief Signal & Telecom Engineer for the Delhi Metro, explains: “As Thales has a long standing relationship with Delhi Metro, the Jaipur Metro contract award was a natural choice, knowing very well the capability of Thales to deliver on time.”

JoĂŁo AraĂșjo, Thales VP for Portugal, commented: “Thales is recognised as a trusted partner in the Indian market, consistently implementing solutions that meet customer requirements and expectations. This latest success is further proof of Thales’s unmatched expertise in the delivery of passenger information solutions for the transportation market.

Thales has a strong presence on India’s urban transportation networks. Recently, Thales was chosen to supply India’s first ever CBTC signalling system for the Hyderabad metro. Thales’s communication systems are also present on the Mumbai and Bangalore metros. In addition to this, Thales has supplied fare collection systems for Delhi’s metro as well as for the Gurgaon Rapid MetroRail.
