WIENER LINIEN has awarded krauth technology a contract for the supply of at least 450 to 550 mobile ticket vending machines for trams.
Wiener Linien operate the largest transport network throughout Austria: 78.5 km underground railway network, approx. 175 km (which is the sixth largest tram network woldwide) and bus lines with almost 850 kilometres altogether. The krauth automates type 0328WL will be operated in all trams.
The constructional conditions inside the trams entail demanding hardware requirements for the automates. A completely new housing design is necessary. The operating concept is realised on the basis of the standard ÖNORM B 1600 2012 (barrier-free construction), permitting persons with handicap and persons with temporarily reduced mobility or sensory disability to operate systems safely and, if possible, without assistance.
