Kearny Mesa-based technology firm Cubic Corp. announced Monday that it has been awarded a $4 million contract to service Ireland’s National Transport Authority mobile ticketing systems. The technology firm said its work with the transport authority is aimed at allowing mobile users to do business with multiple public transport operators.
The technology services firm said its mobile ticketing system has been deployed in over eight cities including New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
“As the very first national mobile ticketing project for Ireland, we look forward to simplifying traveler journeys and creating a quicker and less labor-intensive ticketing process for operators,” Cubic executive Laurent Eskenazi said in a prepared statement.
News of Cubic’s work in Ireland was announced the same day that Cubic was tapped by the city of Cupertino to carry out a citywide transportation management systems upgrade. Citywide traffic services will be carried out by Cubic’s transportation systems subsidiary Trafficware which, as reported by SDBJ, was acquired by the parent company in October for $235.7 million. Financial terms of the Cupertino deal were not disclosed.
