Bay Area signs smart card deal

first_imgTHE LARGEST smart-card fare collection contract yet awarded in North America was signed by San Francisco’s Metropolitan Transportation Commission on May 27. The 10-year turnkey agreement with Motorola’s Worldwide Smartcard Solutions Division and the ERG Group provides for the installation of a smart card ticketing system that may eventually cover every public transport operator in the San Francisco Bay Area. The consortium will initially conduct a six-month trial of the new TransLink system towards the end of next year. This will cover about 5000 passengers using metro, rail, light rail and bus services worked by BART, Caltrain, Muni, Golden Gate Transit, AC Transit and Santa Clara County’s Valley Transportation Authority. If the trials are successful, TransLink will be expanded to cover the services of 26 operators from 2001, allowing seamless travel throughout the region. Motorola and ERG will fund the installation and operation of the equipment, and will receive between US$114m and US$157m, depending the level of card usage over the 10-year concession.last_img read more

Gyan red carded as Amoah scores

first_imgMatthew Amoah ended the first half of the Dutch season on a high after scoring but Asamoah Gyan was red carded in a bad end to what has been a terrific half term for him.The Black Stars striker was sent off for Stade Rennes ten minutes into their 2-0 loss at Sochaux just before he joins up with Ghana for their pre-Nations Cup camping in Nelspruit.It capped a frustrating few weeks when Gyan failed to score but he still ended on a high with eight goals, two behind the leading goal scorer.But while Gyan was ruing an early sending off for the stray elbow, his likely striker partner for Ghana at the Cup of Nations in Angola, Matthew Amoah was grabbing the headlines in Holland for the right reasons in the Dutch Cup.Amoah broke the resistance of De Grafschaap with the opening goal after 107 minutes of play before a second from Giilsen made victory certain for NAC Breda. It was the Ghana striker’s 7th goal of the season.Source: Kickoff.comlast_img read more
