Cubic to supply integrated mobile payment app for LA Metro

Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) awarded Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) a contract to deliver an integrated mobile app in support of the TAP regional contactless fare system. TAP links 24 transit agencies across the Los Angeles region and the mobile app will provide travelers with a range of convenience tools to enhance their daily commute. Designed and delivered by Cubic, TAP is the largest regional smart card fare payment system in the U.S. More than two million active TAP card holders spend in excess of USD 320 million annually and take more than 450 million rides per year across the regional transit network.
The app will be supported by Cubic’s application programming interface (API) portal provided on the company’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud platform enabled via Cubic’s collaboration with Microsoft for the company’s Azure cloud environment. This will connect to both the existing back office and TAP’s new account management platform. Cubic’s open APIs will allow third-party devices to securely interact with TAP cards for authentication, top-up or debiting card and account balances. This will include the ability to use TAP account balances for third-party services such as ride or bike sharing, parking and fare subsidy programs.
Cubic’s traveler app will support smartphone users by providing a variety of TAP card and account management features.
