Cubic and Google Pay Enable Transit Cards for Android Phones

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 16 ottobre 2019

Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) today announced its Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) business division signed an agreement with Google to integrate contactless transit cards with Google Pay, making it fast and easy for travelers to use their mobile phones to pay for their journeys. The collaboration also provides transit agencies using Cubic’s world-leading revenue management systems with the full benefit of Google’s user experiences to increase convenience and encourage ridership. The rollout of this technology will open the door for further enhancement of the contactless payment technology already available in cities such as London, New York and Miami. Cubic’s mobile platform provides travelers with new tools to manage their transit cards and enhance their journey. Passengers can add transit cards to Google Pay, securely reload funds and purchase tickets directly from their mobile device – eliminating the need for a physical transit card. The technology provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for travelers to access real-time schedules for trip planning, a simplified way to purchase and select the right fare as well as real-time notifications and alerts.
Google Pay will benefit daily and occasional commuters by offering more flexibility in payment options. To use Google Pay on public transit, riders just need to hold their Android phone at the turnstiles, with no need to open the app or unlock their device.“This collaboration between Google and Cubic will help us build on the success we’ve seen so far with contactless payments here in New York,” said Al Putre, executive director of One Metro New York (OMNY) Fare Payment Program. “We want to do everything we can to make sure our riders have the best options available and the MTA welcomes this kind of innovative ticketing solution.”
