World’s longest driverless metro

Dubai’s state-of-the-art metro conveys an image of modernity, offers passengers optimum reliability and provides an attractive, sustainable alternative to car journeys. Thales delivered SelTrac® CBTC as a turnkey solution for both the Red and Green Lines which together total 75km. Thales’ fully automated train control system offers optimal life-cycle costs thanks to lower operating and maintenance overheads.

End-to-end fare collection

Demonstrating world-class systems integration capabilities, Thales provided a complete fare collection solution for the Dubai Metro, including car park management and an advanced multimodal ticketing system. With up to 250,000 transactions per day, the system manages special fares for students, senior citizens and disabled passengers – all achieved with a single central processing system. Thales also provided nearly 400 access gates, 160 ticket vending machines, 30 portable checking machines – and more.
