Alstom secured contract from STRS


Alstom has secured a €45m ($52.2m) contract from Morocco-based Rabat-Salé transport company STRS to deliver 22 additional Citadis trams, according to Railway Technology.
The contractual scope also includes the provision of after-sales support services.
The trams to be supplied under the deal will have a length of 32m and will be able to carry up to 606 passengers.
Additionally, the new low-floored trams will comprise 12 side doors to offer improved access for passengers with limited or impaired mobility.
The trams will be delivered 26 months after the contract's initial start date and will be put into operation across the Rabat-Salé network.
Cubic Transportation Systems has been awarded a deal worth $539.5m by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to replace the existing MetroCard ticketing system with new contactless technology.
Cubic will be responsible for the design, integration, supply and implementation of the new fare payment system under the agreement.
The new system will support multiple payment modes, including debit and credit cards, mobile devices and conventional smart card transactions at turnstiles or on-board the bus itself.
In addition, a variety of new equipment such as fare validators and new configurable ticket-vending machines are set to be installed across MTA’s 472 subway stations and on-board 6,000 buses as part of the arrangement.
The contract also requires Cubic to provide associated services for platform hosting and hardware / software maintenance, as well as supplemental call centre support.
Spain-based CAF has been awarded a €37m ($43.47m) contract by Storstockholms Lokaltrafik to deliver 12 additional trams by late-2019.
The new bi-directional trams are expected to be developed based on the URBOS platform and will meet the necessary environmental standards.
They will be designed to operate in the extreme Nordic weather conditions and will feature low floors to offer optimal accessibility.
In addition, the vehicles will have a maximum speed of 90km/h and are set to be integrated with the latest safety equipment.
The new trams will be deployed to operate on the transport network in Stockholm, Sweden.
The latest order forms part of an initial contract signed for 15 trams in 2010, which included an option for the supply an additional 121 trams.
