Welcome to the Cubic Transportation Systems blog! We will be posting about automated fare collection, contactless/mobile payment, and other new trends in transit fare collection. Follow us on twitter at @CubicTS for updates on our latest postings.
Hurricane Sandy ripped through the northeast last week, leaving a path of destruction in her wake. Fifty million Americans have been affected by Sandy, including many of our employees, their families, as well as our customers and suppliers and their families. Our hearts and support go out to all those who have been impacted.
On July 6th, I was lucky enough to be present at the White House ceremony where President Obama signed legislation that accomplishes the important goal of rebuilding America's infrastructure and keeping thousands of workers on the job.
As summer arrives, Cubic’s leadership in open payment systems for revenue management is blossoming with the introduction of Nextaccount, the first of several new products in Cubic’s solution systems portfolio for the next generation of fully integrated Automated Fare Collection (AFC) systems.
The transit industry is on the verge of a transformation, and Nextaccount creates the ability for transit agencies to continue to reduce their cost of fare collection while improving the traveler and customer experience.
