Cubic equips N.Y. MTA bus arrival info system

Posted on October 10, 2013

Cubic Transportation Systems delivered the on-time installation of its Bus Hardware Subsystem (BHS) for the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority 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.

Cubic completed the BHS installation on 620 buses serving Manhattan, with a daily ridership of nearly half a million, to support the Bus Time system, which went live this week. As part of the BHS, Cubic has delivered its new Mobile Validator that will function as the on-board computer for the system.  

By end of this year, Cubic will complete BHS installation on approximately 3,200 additional buses serving Brooklyn and Queens. The MTA awarded Cubic a contract for nearly $27 million in February this year to support deployment across the three boroughs of 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 promote an open architecture and multiple supplier approach on the program.
