ITS (UK) Executive Member Cubic Transportation Systems have signed a definitive agreement with Moovit, the leading Mobility-as-a-Service solutions company and provider of the most popular urban mobility application, to co-develop next-generation mobile solutions for public transit agencies.
The partnership will enable Cubic and Moovit to integrate Moovit’s MaaS APIs with Cubic’s Mobile Suite to offer an advanced traveler 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. Our technologies and abilities are complementary. 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. “The integration of Moovit’s multimodal journey planning into Cubic’s industry-leading mobile ticketing and payment offering in the Traveller Application from our Mobile Suite will offer a one-of-a-kind platform with a seamless, highly differentiated user experience.”
“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 rich transit data and world-leading multimodal journey planner, coupled with Cubic’s powerful 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.”
Under the partnership, Cubic will integrate Moovit’s rich MaaS APIs with Cubic’s Traveler App to include service alerts, nearby transit service lines, multimodal trip planning and real-time arrival information. The combined solution enables agencies to offer travellers a world-leading journey experience.
Underpinning this definitive agreement, Cubic and Moovit have 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.
