ERG alliance lands Rome transport deal
THE ERG Motorola Alliance has won the contract to install and manage a smart card fare collection system in Rome’s Metrebus system for nine years, with an additional five year option.

The alliance will design, supply and operate an integrated smart card fare collection system for bus, rail and tram networks in Rome and surrounding region of Lazio.

The alliance will supply equipment and software worth about $70 million that will form the initial infrastructure of the project.

The system is expected to generate about $527 million in revenue in 2000. Over the initial nine year contract term, the gross revenue will be about $5.7 billion.

Of that, the alliance will retain about $420 million.

A network of 30 bus depot computer systems and 76 rail station computers will be linked via a network to a central clearing and processing computer system.

The system will be based on ERG’s Hong Kong central clearing and smart card system which has been selected for use by transit authorities in the UK, Berlin, Singapore and San Francisco.
