Angers Loire Métropole and RD Angers select EQUANS to upgrade their Navineo CAD/AVL solution on their entire fleet
Angers Loire Métropole and RD Angers, the company overseeing the operation and maintenance of fixed route bus and Light Rail network for Angers Loire Métropole Urban Community, have selected EQUANS to upgrade their Navineo CAD/AVL. Under this contract, EQUANS will modernize the entire Irigo urban transit fleet,1 including 105 buses and 37 Light Rail. This solution will come into operation on tram line A in 2022 for a period of eight years.
“With the launch of our interconnected tram network – lines A, B and C – in 2023 and the restructuring of the associated bus network, the CAD/AVL needs a major overhaul both to optimize and secure the performance of the urban transit network and to provide reliable passenger information. EQUANS expertise, coupled with its Navineo system, are our guarantee that this project will be successful.” – Corinne Bouchoux, Vice-President “Ecological transition and mobility” at Angers Loire Métropole
“We are delighted to be able to support Angers urban area in its transition towards greener, higher-performance mobility. In keeping with the smart territory project already spearheaded by EQUANS, we are continuing to reinvent living spaces in Angers, to meet environmental needs and enhance comfort for residents. EQUANS is working tirelessly, in conjunction with its clients, to make public transport more attractive, as this is the most environmentally friendly mode of transport.” – Baudouin Huon, CEO of Ineo Systrans at EQUANS.
