TG21 plc ('the Company') announces agreement with Biodata Limited

For release: 23 May 2006

TG21 plc today announces that its subsidiary 21st Century Crime Prevention
Services Limited ('21st Century') has today signed an agreement with Biodata
Limited ('Biodata') for the exclusive rights to Biodata's people counting system
when interfaced with public transport vehicle systems.

21st Century is a leading provider of on-board CCTV to the UK bus market and is
also developing several new products for the public transport market. The first
two of these, Revenue-Manager(TM) and Eco-Manager(TM), are aimed at enhancing
revenue and reducing running costs for bus operators. The Biodata system known
as 'Video Turnstile' uses their technology in conjunction with overhead CCTV to
count passengers entering and leaving a vehicle. The Video Turnstile will be
interfaced with fare revenue data from the ticketing machines and automatically
transmit an audit report back to the control centre as each bus returns to its
depot. Biodata are also developing an interface to the Eco-Manager product which
is aimed at reducing fuel and maintenance costs for bus operators by monitoring
and reporting on driver behaviour. A major public transport company has already
agreed to run trials with 21st Century for both Revenue-Manager and Eco-Manager
on 54 of its buses.

Peter Ward, Chairman of TG21 plc, commented:

'We are delighted to announce the deal with Biodata for the exclusive rights to
its people counting system when interfaced with public transport vehicle
systems. This technology, when coupled with 21st Century's two new products will
give greater control on revenue and reduced running costs for bus operators up
and down the country. We are working with a major public transport company to
trial these new products and look forward to updating the market further, in due

Founded in Manchester over 30 years ago, Biodata originally developed technology
to link laboratory instruments with microcomputers. The product range soon
developed to provide solutions for data acquisition and control problems and
they were one of the first measurement companies to achieve ISO 9001 (EN29001)
certification. Biodata's people counting system is currently in use in over 20
countries around the world. For more information go to
