Posted on October 7, 2002

Cubic Transportation Systems launched its new Cubic Bus Controller (CBC), an on-bus processing platform designed to integrate automatic fare collection technology, including contactless smart car processing and farebox cash collection. The San Diego Metropolitan Transit Development Board (MTDB) and the North County Transit District (NCTD) will implement the platform as part of their recently announced contracts with Cubic. CBC communicates with the depot computer and/or central computer system via WLAN or an optional wireless communications card to support real-time wireless communications. The system is also capable of integrating applications such as automatic vehicle location, automatic passenger counting and video surveillance.
