Bangalore Metro Inauguration – Phase 2





MSI Global has been working with Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), in implementing automatic fare collection systems for the Namma Metro. With the success of our Phase 1 AFC system upgrade, MSI Global was awarded a phase 2 contract on 25 February 2019 to deliver an end-to-end turnkey automatic fare collection system from Tier 1 (Station Equipment) up to Tier 4 (the Account-Based Ticketing Central Clearing House).The first 5 stations have been in service since 14 January 2021, and the remaining 56 stations will commence revenue service progressively. The system is due for completion on 31st December 2023. One mission critical objective of this project is to ensure seamless integration with the existing phase 1 system.
