Cubic to Help Migrate Atlanta’s Fare Collection System to Cloud

Cubic business unit has received a potential $6.5 million contract to help the  Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority implement a cloud-based back office system to process transit fare payments.

Cubic Transportation Systems partnered with Microsoft to migrate the city of Atlanta’s Breeze Card automated fare collection system to the Azure cloud platform,  Cubic said Tuesday.

CTS will also leverage the NextFare central system software to update Breeze Card database and help MARTA comply with payment card industry requirements.

The upgrade effort also seeks to boost the network security and disaster recovery capacities of the AFC platform.

CTS built MARTA’s fare processing system equipped with a smart card ticketing technology and the company has provided maintenance support to the platform since 2006.
