Cubic appointed to bring mobile ticketing to Irelands transport infrastructure

Ireland’s National Transport Authority  has appointed Cubic Corporation’s Cubic Transportation Systems division a $4m+ (£3.1m+) contract to deliver a mobile ticketing system for the country.

Cubics solution will enable travellers in Ireland to buy tickets for multiple public transport operators. The solution supports the NTAs vision to make public transportation in Ireland simpler and more efficient for travellers.

Cubics mobile ticketing solution enables multimodal transportation through an integrated user interface. The mobile ticketing app enables travellers to easily buy tickets and manage their online accounts. It has been deployed and is being rolled out in Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Chicago, New York, Cologne, Germany and Brisbane, Australia.

“We are very pleased to work with the NTA to deliver a mobile ticketing system for Ireland that benefits from the in-depth experience and knowledge weve gained through supporting large, medium and small agencies worldwide,” said Laurent Eskenazi, managing director, EMEA for Cubic Transportation Systems. “As the very first national mobile ticketing project for Ireland, we look forward to simplifying traveller journeys and creating a quicker and less labour-intensive ticketing process for operators.”
