Indra joins leading global public transport association to help improve mobility worldwide

Spanish transportation technology developer and consultancy Indra has joined the leading global public transport association, the UITP (International Union of Public Transport), with the aim of contributing to the organization’s key mission of improving urban and interurban mobility.

Indra’s incorporation will mean it can take part in the UITP’s studies and analyses and the discussion sessions and events it organizes. The company will also be able to serve on some of the association’s commissions and committees, and reinforce its relations with the industry and with the main public transport authorities and operators all over the world.

Indra is keen to play an active part in this forum for knowledge and collaboration with its clients, as it is a world leader in smart technology for transport, with references in over 50 countries, including the USA, Canada, the UK, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ireland, China and India.

The company is a technology provider in some of the most advanced and ambitious transport projects worldwide, particularly the fields of traffic control systems and transport operations, payment collection systems, planning and control systems, communications and transport networks, information systems and support for operations for all transport modes, in addition to infrastructure security and protection.

Over 100 cities around the world, including London, Madrid, Dublin, Medellin, Curitiba, Kuwait and Manila, currently use Indra’s technology to improve their urban mobility systems. When applied to traffic management and urban and interurban transport, the company’s smart technology aims to create a safer, more efficient and more sustainable mobility system.

Indra is an advocate of the use of public and intermodal urban transport services to reduce congestion, and polluting emissions, and their corresponding costs. The company is also among the world’s foremost ticketing system operators, with its technology used by: the subways in Madrid, Barcelona, Calcutta, Mumbai, Shanghai, Cairo, Santiago de Chile, and Lisbon; trains in Buenos Aires; the suburban railroad in Mexico City; the monorail and subway in Kuala Lumpur; and the light rail systems in St Louis and Austin (USA). Over 14,600 buses around the world are also managed with the company’s technology.

Berta Barrero, head of Indra’s transportation department at Indra, commented, “Our incorporation in the UITP is a clear example of our commitment to the transport sector and our willingness to share and capitalize on our know-how in smart solutions and systems to improve mobility and make it more efficient, more sustainable and safer.”
