Indra It has been contracted to upgrade the system of management of the fleet of buses operating in the city of Monterrey (Mexico). The contract includes the supply, installation and commissioning of a new support system to exploitation (SAE) for Ecovia, as well as the technological support and maintenance.
The multinational company will implement in Monterrey the more advanced version of the SAE system for control of the fleet of 80 buses that run along exclusive lanes in the center of the main roads of the corridor Lincoln-Ruiz Cortines, which will improve the efficiency, safety and quality of the service provided to the four million inhabitants of Monterrey.
