AI and digital technologies from Thales are making rail transport the sustainable choice.
China is the world’s biggest urban rail market. It’s also one of the fastest growing, with 8,500km of new lines planned in 40 cities. Thales is supporting this expansion through Thales SAIC Transport (TST) – a joint venture with Shanghai Electric dedicated to urban rail signalling. Since its foundation in 2010, TST has put 630km of lines into service with SelTrac™ CBTC. A further eight lines go into operation in 2017.
To help transport operator TfL (Transport for London) cater for rising demand, Thales is implementing SelTrac™ CBTC signalling across the District, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines – four of London’s busiest routes. The upgrade will mean faster and more frequent journeys for millions of passengers, with capacity up by a third. The main benefits will be delivered by 2022, when the frequency of trains at peak periods will increase to 32 trains per hour in central London.
Enter the new age of CBTC with SelTrac™ G7 the enabling platform for autonomy. Discover how your network could be upgraded to benefit from this new generation of train control solution.
The Dubai Metro in the United Arab Emirates is the centrepiece of a successful programme to combat congestion and boost productivity in one of the world’s fastest-growing cities. Thales implemented a complete technology package to deliver a world-class passenger experience: the solution includes SelTrac™ CBTC for reliable driverless operations, easy multimodal ticketing and passenger information. Wi-Fi is provided on trains, so passengers can make the most of their journeys.
