Cubic wins BART contract for expanded rail

Posted on October 26, 2012

Cubic Transportation Systems Inc. received a $10 million contract to deliver the Clipper Card fare collection system to the Bay Area Rapid Transit District’s (BART) expanded train service into Silicon Valley.

The Warm Springs Extension, scheduled to open in 2015, will add 5.4 miles of new track from the existing Fremont Station south to the Warm Springs District in Fremont.

Warm Springs Constructors, the consortium that is building the BART Warm Springs Track Extension Project, awarded the contract to Cubic Transportation Systems, a business unit of Cubic Corp.

Cubic has delivered systems and services to BART since the company’s first contract in 1974. In 1999, Cubic received a contract for the replacement of the agency’s previous fare collection system and Cubic’s expansion of its new system to the then-new San Francisco Airport extension.

In 2009, Cubic took over the Clipper Card contract to integrate and complete the project across the original partner agencies that had joined the system. Cubic is continuing to expand the system under its contract with the Metropolitan Transit Commission, the regional transportation authority.
