Cubic Transportation Systems and industry partners to address move toward demand-based travel
SAN DIEGO, April 19, 2017 – Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS), a business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE:CUB), today announced that Andy Taylor, strategy director for CTS, will participate in a panel discussion on Mobility as a Service (MaaS) at the 58th Transportation Research Forum Annual Conference at the University of Illinois, Chicago from April 20 – 21. Taylor and panelists will discuss “The MaaS effect on the business of transport,” homing in on what the sharing economy means, where industry providers come into play and the user-centric view for better planning and management of all modes of transportation, all through the tap of an app.
“MaaS is an international reality that is changing the way people view mobility within the urban environment; it’s more than what you think,” said Taylor. “A journey is no longer from point A to point B via a single mode, but rather a holistic view of our movements. MaaS taps perfectly into the on-demand economy and puts integration at the heart of transportation. This is where Cubic’s expertise in payment and information solutions comes into play.”
Taylor will take part in the following panel session:
