Under the partnership, Cubic will reportedly integrate Moovit’s MaaS APIs with Cubic’s Traveller App to include service alerts, nearby transit service lines, multimodal trip planning and real-time arrival information.
Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS), a business division of Cubic Corporation ticketing, fare collection and management solutions for public transportation systems, and Moovit, the Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) solutions company, have signed a definitive agreement to co-develop next-generation mobile solutions for public transit agencies.
The partnership will reportedly enable Cubic and Moovit to integrate Moovit’s MaaS APIs with Cubic’s Mobile Suite to offer an improved traveller experience based on Moovit’s multimodal trip planning and Cubic’s mobile payment and ticketing capabilities.
“Cubic and Moovit share similar visions of the future of MaaS. This partnership is just the beginning of an alignment to serve the interest and operations of our customers – the public transit agencies,” said Bradley H. Feldmann, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cubic Corporation.
“Moovit’s mission is to simplify urban mobility, and since 2012 we have worked with thousands of transit agencies across 3,000 cities to make that a reality,” said Nir Erez, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Moovit. “Now, together with Cubic’s global footprint, we can advance the capabilities of public transit agencies and empower them with our transit data and multimodal journey planner, coupled with Cubic’s mobile ticketing, to provide urban mobility users with a true MaaS experience. Riders will be able to plan journeys and pay for them too, from the ease of a single platform. We look forward to continuing to work with Cubic to reach our shared goals.”
Cubic and Moovit have also signed a broader strategic agreement to jointly lay the groundwork for further exploration and collaboration intending to bring additional MaaS offerings to public transit agencies around the world.
