Cubic to continue maintenance, tech support for LA Metro TAP system

Posted on May 15, 2019

Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) was awarded and has executed a 5 ½-year, $68.2 million extension contract award by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) to provide field maintenance and technical support services for the TAP reginal fare payment program.

The services contract is also linked to two recently awarded contracts for a mobile app and its operations, as well as infrastructure upgrades that will support the app and enhances the overall TAP network to a next-generation payment system. TAP, Metro's contactless fare system that links 26 regional transit providers on a common contactless smart card, is being enhanced to include a leading edge mobile app to complement the Metro-developed cloud wallet, TAPforce.

TAPforce allows users to load value to a cloud account and use the funds to both load TAP cards and pay for variety of new Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) programs implemented by Metro, such as parking and bike- and ride-share services, in addition to transit rail and bus fare products on the TAP card via one account for a seamless way of travel.
