Cubic receives $18.9M San Francisco contract

Posted on December 1, 2008

Cubic Transportation Systems Inc., a subsidiary of San Diego-based Cubic Corp., has received an $18.9 million contract to refurbish and upgrade the company's 17-year-old fare collection system operated by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SMFTA) for the San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni).

The contract includes a new central computer system that will deliver improved data retrieval and reporting for Muni to monitor ridership patterns and manage its revenues.

Originally designed and delivered under a 1991 contract with Muni, Cubic's fare collection system is a network of electronic fareboxes that collects and processes cash fares aboard Muni's buses, trolleys and light rail system. The fareboxes will be modernized with new internal components that will provide increased reliability.

The fare collection system upgrade will be completed in 2010.
