Cubic Transportation Systems to promote openness and data sharing to advance Mobility as a Service initiative
SAN DIEGO – Oct. 23, 2018 – Cubic Corporation (NYSE:CUB) today announced that its Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) business division will participate in California Transit Association’s 53rd Annual Fall Conference & Expo in Long Beach, California, from October 24–26. The event will study the megatrends that are reshaping public and private transportation into a new mobility ecosystem inspired by technology, big data and ever-increasing rider expectations.
“With a growing interest in mobility on demand in the U.S., U.K. and Europe, it’s time the transit industry concentrated on promoting openness and broadening data sharing,” said Crissy Ditmore, strategy director, CTS. “A focus on open APIs and greater knowledge transfer between various private and public transit stakeholders will not only help the industry effectively prepare for the transportation challenges of tomorrow, but will play a crucial role in advancing Mobility as a Service.”
Ditmore was recently named the chair of TravelSpirit Foundation, a nonprofit organization that connects coders, planners, activists and policy makers in the transportation sector. Ditmore will advocate for openness in data sharing and push forward the development of partnerships with other industry-leading organizations to define common API frameworks that benefit the transit traveler community.
At the conference, Ditmore will participate in the following sessions:
- “Transforming Transit: Redesigning our Future”
Thursday, October 25, 9:15 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
- “Mobility-as-a-Service: Integrated, Seamless, Connected”
Thursday, October 25, 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Cubic will also showcase new technologies aimed at simplifying ticketing for small to large transit agencies. These solutions consist of the company’s latest-generation bus driver control unit and payment validators, including its next-generation validator and one from partner Delerrok, a leading provider of cloud-hosted electronic ticketing solutions for small to mid-sized transit operators.
