In a move designed to create a transport fare payment system compatible with all transport in the region, the Conseil General De La Gironde in the Bordeaux region of France has chosen ERG Transit Systems to provide and install their smart card fare collection system.

The contract, which has a value of EUR 2.4 million, will be completed in mid 2006. The new system will allow the use of paper tickets, magnetic stripe tickets and smart cards, greatly increasing passenger convenience. It will be installed on 350 buses serving the interurban area. This is the fourth French contract awarded to ERG for smart card fare collection equipment within the past twelve months. In addition to the Conseil General De La Gironde, recent tenders awarded include Department of Bas-Rhin Strasbourg, Clermont-Ferrand and La Roche/Yon.
