August 30, 2010

BEIJING, Aug. 30 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — China TransInfo Technology
Corp. (Nasdaq: CTFO), (“China TransInfo” or the “Company”), a leading provider
of intelligent transportation systems for highway and urban transportation
management in China, announced today that the Company was recently awarded
electronic toll collection (“ETC”) contracts totaling RMB 44.6 million
(approximately $6.7 million) in Shanxi Province, Shandong Province and Sichuan
Province
.

According to the contracts, China TransInfo will provide ETC electronics
engineering machinery systems, ETC application system development and
upgrading services, and 10,000 onboard electronic tags for highway authorities
in Shanxi Province. The Company will also provide 10,000 onboard electronic
tags and 120 readers for highway authorities in Shandong Province and Sichuan
Province
. Of the RMB 44.6 million total revenue contribution from the
contracts, RMB 12.0 million is expected to be recognized through the balance
of 2010, with the remaining RMB 32.6 million expected to be recognized in 2011
and 2012.

China TransInfo has become one of the top three players in the ETC sector
and has the highest annual growth rate in market share. In 2007, China rolled
out domestic ETC standards. In 2008, the government started to promote ETC,
first with pilot projects in several provinces and regions and then expanded
them to build a national ETC network. As one of only eight companies with a
track record of successfully selling related products, China TransInfo won its
first ETC project in Zhejiang Province in 2009, and then went on to win bids
in Jiangsu, Shandong, Shaaxi Shanxi provinces and Tianjin Municipality.

“We are excited about the significant progress we have made in the ETC
market,” commented Mr. Shudong Xia, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
“This year, with one exception, we have won projects in every province and
municipality in China that solicited new bids. Our recent success in Shanxi,
Shandong and Sichuan provinces further demonstrates strong market recognition
for our products and technology and increases our market penetration in
different regions, paving a solid foundation for us to continue to expand
nationally. We expect strong growth in the ETC market as regulatory
authorities continue to push implementation and car owners increasingly
purchase and install onboard electronic tags. Based on our advanced technology,
product advantage, brand equity and solid customer relations, we are confident
that we will continue to benefit from the growth of the ETC market.”
