Building a future we can all trust:
Thales’ data-driven metro solutions
From Sydney to Santiago, Doha to Dubai, Thales supports the world’s biggest public transportation projects. Delivering customer-centric digital solutions for metros of the future.
The Global Benchmark
Thales’ metro experience dates back to the 1980s with the invention of the proven metro signalling solution Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC). Today, our fully automated, integrated and upgradeable SelTrac™ CBTC solution has become the global benchmark - it has been installed on 86 metro lines in 40 cities, helping to move more than 3 billion passengers every year. Coupled with our integrated communication and supervision systems offering, Thales is able to provide an end-to-end metro system offering, which leverages state of the art technology, significantly reduces operations and maintenance costs, and delivers superior safety and reliability.
Thales provides an end-to-end solution for metro command and control, including field-proven, mission critical systems for signalling and communications.
Our integrated offering is at the heart of the metro, facilitating coordination of everything from traffic management to video surveillance and enabling you to monitor the entire network in real-time, providing the adequate support to make faster decisions, reduce risk, and ensure smooth, continuous operations.
Thales has a unique position in the transportation industry as a leading signalling provider for urban rail systems. 86 metro lines in 40 countries transport passengers using Thales technologies. Added to this, 19,000km of mainline track in 42 countries also transport passengers using our solutions.
In Australia, Thales has deployed its integrated communication and supervisions solution on the Sydney Metro Northwest and Sydney Metro City & Southwest lines. Find out more about our Sydney references, as well as some of our global metro references below.
