Metro de Madrid and Indra, awarded for new station access systems




The international awards `Transport Ticketing Awards 2022´ have awarded Metro de Madrid and Indra for their new access control systems to the stations in Madrid’s metro network.


Metro de Madrid and Indra, awarded for new station access systems

(21/07/2022) 

Metro de Madrid and Indra´s candidacy obtained the Highly Commended mention, equivalent to a second prize, in the `Ticketing Technology of the Year´ category. The award recognizes technological solutions that have developed new products related to ticketing. Such is the case of Metro de Madrid and Indra’s innovative new access control equipment, which has been manufactured within the technological paradigms of the well-known Station 4.0.

Advantages

Among the main advantages of these access control systems is that they offer more space for customers to pass through, information screens with ergonomic interfaces, LED panels, loudspeakers and an easy, understandable and visible validation “feedback” system. This consists of a colour code that illuminates both the validation area and various elements of the equipment, so that customers know at all times the status of the equipment and the correct validation to access or if there is a problem. Likewise, they offer information in English to facilitate access to tourists.

This system is already operational at the Gran Vía station which, after being completely remodelled, has been the first station where these new access turnstiles have been installed and verified.
