Cubic has won a six-year $54.5 million contract extension to continue providing repairs, maintenance and services in support of Los Angeles County’s automated fare collection system.
The firm built and integrated the Transit Access Pass smart card ticketing system for the county’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority, a service that supports more than 4,000 buses, 80 terminals and six rail lines, Cubic said Tuesday.
Cubic maintains more than 2,000 TAP-enabled devices under the contract.
“Our contract extension validates a client relationship of more than ten years,” said Richard Wunderle, senior vice president and general manager for Cubic North America, noting the company’s role in TAP development and operation.
According to Cubic, the project is part of Metro’s modernization plan that also includes improved transit ridership and tailored services for commuters across the county.
