Mera Systems from Grodzisk Mazowiecki, as a subcontractor of the Berlin IVU, will provide ticket machines to the Austrian market. The devices produced by Mera will improve the quality of public transport in the Eastern Alps region.
The Polish company Mera Systems designs and manufactures self-service ticket sales systems in public transport, i.e., among others, the ticket machines popular among passengers. In turn, the German IVU specializes in IT solutions that increase the efficiency of railway and bus carriers.
IVU together with Mera Systems, as a subcontractor, submitted an offer under a pan-European tender for the implementation of a ticketing and traffic control system for VVV – the Public Transport Association in Vorarlberg, Austrian federal state. VVV Vorarlberg connects 26 bus and rail operators as well as regional connections of the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) and Montafonerbahn AG. The offer submitted by IVU in partnership with Mera Systems proved to be the most advantageous one. The implemented systems are to improve the quality of public transport throughout the entire Eastern Alpes region.
As part of the order for VVV, Mera Systems will design, produce and supply 70 mobile ticket machines.The ticket machines will go to Vorarlberg in the first quarter of 2019. For the company, it is the first contract on the Austrian market.
– Over the last few years, we have been focused on the Polish market. We strengthened our position in the sector of ticket sales systems in public transport. Now, our goal is also to develop sales on foreign markets. In March, the German FlixBus, which is the undisputed leader in intercity transport in Europe, ordered stationary ticket machines. Currently, our ticket machines are being tested in Belarus. And entering the Austrian market and working with VVV is a confirmation that foreign expansion is a good strategy for the development of our company – says Adam Filutowski, president of Mera Systems.
