N.Y. MTA awards Cubic $27M contract

Posted on March 18, 2013

Cubic Transportation Systems was awarded a contract for nearly $27 million from the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to build and integrate the bus hardware system for MTA Bus Time, the authority’s customer information system for bus location and arrival times that will be accessible to riders using an Internet browser-based map, a mobile phone-based application and a text message-based service.

As part of the Bus Hardware System, Cubic will deliver its new Mobile Validator, which will function as the on-board computer and bus location device for the system.

The MTA is rolling out the GPS-based system across the remaining three boroughs after last year’s successful launch in Staten Island and the Bronx. Cubic will install the MTA’s Bus Hardware System on approximately 3,800 buses serving Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.

MTA Bus Time was implemented on the Staten Island and Bronx bus fleets last year by a different supplier, in keeping with the MTA’s decision to have at least two suppliers on the program.
