Indra will be responsible for the design, development and supply of automatic ticket vending machines, ticketing systems and access control systems from its Mova Collect line of own solutions, based on both contactless card and QR code and mobile phone technologies for the first time in Egypt.
The systems will be installed at the 22 stations on the line linking East Cairo to the future New Administrative Capital and at the 12 stations on the line between 6th of October City and Giza. The two lines will have the capacity to transport 45,000 people per hour in each direction.
Indra will implement a system for the control centre which will centralize and integrate all the operations and sales modules in order to provide the operator with greater control, secure access to information and flexibility to adapt to the needs and users' habits.
The new monorail will facilitate mobility for the nearly 20 million people living in the metropolitan area of the Egyptian capital, known as "Greater Cairo", the largest urban area in Africa and one of the largest metropolises in the world.
