FLORHAM PARK, N.J. and GUILHERAND-GRANGES, France, March 23, 2022 -- Conduent Transportation, a global business unit of Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT), today announced that Société de Transport de Montréal (STM) has renewed the company’s contract for another three years to support seven transportation networks with maintenance and upgrades of their systems and ticketing equipment in the Montreal metropolitan area and Quebec City. STM serves as the delegated ticketing manager on behalf of the Autorité Régionale de Transport Métropolitain (ARTM) , owner of the ticketing system. The award comes as Conduent Transportation continues to build upon its international presence and expand around the world.
