Cubic, PATCO Partner to Offer Prepaid Visa Card for Transit, Retail

Cubic Transportation Systems, Cubic Corporation's transportation segment, and PATCO are partnering to provide commuters in the Philadelphia/New Jersey region with the first transit-branded, contactless Visa prepaid card in the world.

The new PATCO Wave & Pay ANYWHERE Visa Prepaid Card began a 12-month pilot program on September 26. This marks the first time that consumers will be able to use the same transit payment card for both transit and retail purchases.

“Cubic is excited about this opportunity to field the first full deployment of a general purpose reloadable prepaid card,“ said Steve Shewmaker, president of Cubic Transportation Systems worldwide. “This is all about making life for the transit agency and their customers even more convenient.“
