GMV has won a contract for setting up and maintaining a real-time passenger information system with control center for part of Warsaw’s tram fleet. Poland has once more taken up GMV’s system from among 14 other bidding companies, making Warsaw the fifth Polish city to install one of the market’s most advanced systems for giving passengers real-time urban transport information.
The new platform to be installed in Warsaw will keep a constant track on the position and state of each tram at all moments while also reporting on any operational incident that might crop up. The system will enhance efficiency and operational speed and give better information on each tram running on the line.
Together with the existing panels and the trams already fitted out, GMV’s system will be running a total of 68 panels and 480 trams. The project also allows for upsizing to 600 trams and 500 stops.
Warsaw, Poland’s biggest city, has been the country’s capital since 1596. Its population is 1.7 million and about 2.8 million people live in its whole metropolitan area. It lies right in the center of the country in the Mazowsze region (of which it is also the capital city) on the banks of the Vistula River.
This contract award represents yet another international customer for GMV in the transport area, to be added to the intelligent transportation systems that GMV is developing in Putrajaya (Malaysia), Ahmedabad (India) Budapest (Hungary) and those of Gdansk, Bydgoszcz, Czechowice-Dziedzice and Szczecin in Poland itself.
