BEA Transit wins $1.4M Canadian smart-card contract

Posted on August 9, 2011

BEA Transit Solutions Inc. will supply and install its smart card-based, automated fare collection (AFC) system to the City of Lethbridge, Alberta for use on the local L.A. Transit system. The $1.4-million contract includes all 43 of the City's transit vehicles.

Lethbridge Transit is the sixth Canadian system to acquire the BEA Transit Solutions system in the past five years. The most recent launch was in Regina, Saskatchewan in December 2010. The complete BEA fare collection system is also installed in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; Kingston, Ontario; and Brantford, Ontario. Metrobus in St. John's, Newfoundland was the first Canadian customer of the BEA smart card system.

The Lethbridge system will include onboard fareboxes and smart card readers; central fare processing equipment; and all communications, hardware and software required. BEA will also provide all on-site training and installation services as part of the contract.

The system is expected to be launched in late 2011.
