Hitachi Rail & EASIER have partnered to provide comprehensive ticketing systems for the very first Cable C1 cable car line in Val-de-Marne in Ile-de-France.

Following a successful bid, the tender for the project was issued by French engineering group EGIS and will see the two companies install a set of integrated ticketing solutions for the new cable car line.

The cable car line is the first to be installed in Île-de-France

The project, which aims to link the towns of Créteil and Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, is set to be concluded in late 2025.

Jean-Marc Reynaud, Vice President Hitachi Rail - Revenue Collection Systems, said:

We are proud of the confidence placed in us by Ile-de-France Mobilités in this innovative public transport project for the first cable car in the Ile-de-France region.

We are committed to providing our experience in terms of equipment reliability and continue to collaborate with EASIER, remaining determined to stimulate innovation in the transport sector.

Hitachi Rail’s installations will include the addition of 60 EASIER access gates throughout the line, all of which are equipped with DIRAS infrared detection technology, which consists of a high-density matrix of infrared emitters and photoelectric receptor cells that aim to facilitate travel and provide fraud management.

In addition to the ticketing gates, Hitachi’s Transcity solution will be integrated into the line’s ticketing system, allowing for the use of a wide range of contactless payment systems.

Alain Combette, Sales Director for EASIER, said:

We work regularly with the Hitachi Rail Group, particularly on the Grand Paris metro project. This partnership between our companies enables us to remain ever more competitive, but above all to deploy our products and expertise to transport as many passengers as possible. Créteil's 'Câble C1', the first urban cable car in the Paris region, promises to be a minor revolution in the world of Parisian mobility.

With overflights of between 25 and 40 metres, there's no doubt that this new mode of public transport will be innovative, both in terms of the design of the vehicle and the infrastructure on the ground.
