Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS), a business unit of Cubic Corp., announced the award of a $12.7 million, two-year contract extension from the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) for automated fare collection (AFC) maintenance services.

The contract also includes options for an upgrade path to support future updates, which could increase the value to $52 million if all options are exercised.

CTS designed and delivered MARTA’s Breeze Card, a card-based AFC system that utilizes Cubic’s smart card ticketing technology, in 2006. Since then, Cubic has been providing maintenance and onsite support to MARTA and maintenance support to its regional partners: the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA), Cobb and Gwinnett counties, and the Atlanta Streetcar. The Breeze Card system currently generates more than 106 million rides annually.

Under the contract extension, CTS will continue to support MARTA and its regional partners with their AFC system. These services include first-line hardware support, corrective and preventive maintenance services, and local infrastructure support, as well as software support and maintenance management.

The contract extension will help support the growth of transit services in and around Atlanta, which is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing urban areas in the country.
