Miami-Dade creates Super Bowl smart card

Posted on February 3, 2010

Cubic Corp. subsidiary, eAccess LLC, announced it has produced several thousand Super Bowl Commemorative EASY Cards for Miami-Dade Transit.

The NFL-sanctioned commemorative cards went on sale at the beginning of February and are being sold while supplies last until game day, February 7th.

Available for $5 at designated EASY Card sales outlets in the greater Miami area, the commemorative cards are made from durable plastic composite materials and feature the official NFL and Super Bowl XLIV logos. Passengers simply add value to the cards and tap them on a validator before boarding their bus or train.

eAccess, LLC is Cubic Corp.'s RFID and smart card production company. Through strategic alliances with companies in Asia, North America, South America and the Middle East, eAccess offers smart card supply and combined services from Cubic.

Another Cubic subsidiary, Cubic Transportation Systems, developed and delivered Miami-Dade Transit's smart-card based fare collection system. The fare collection system entered service in October 2009, and is now operational across 22 Metrorail stations and in more than 800 buses.
