Posted on March 7, 2005

Cubic Transportation Systems Ltd. (CTSL) received a $21.8 million contract from Swedish transport operator Skanetrafiken for the design, delivery and implementation of a smart card-based fare collection system. The new multi-modal system will connect bus and rail services in Skane, the largest county in southern Sweden. The new fare collection system, called Resekortet, will consist of operating software, communications, driver control units and validators for buses; and ticket vending machines, station validators and handheld devices for rail. Cubic will also supply and install its Nextfare Central System for Skanetrafiken's back office computing system. The new system is scheduled to be in operation by 2006. Cubic Nordic, a division of CTSL, will handle all aspects of the contract.
