Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS), a business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE:CUB), today announced that John Hill, senior account director for the city of London, CTS, will speak about the growing usage and success of contactless bankcard payments at the 9th Transport Ticketing Global conference. Transport Ticketing is the world’s largest public transport gathering, bringing together key industry players from the intelligent ticketing, passenger and smart cities industries. The conference will be held at the iconic Old Billingsgate Market, London, United Kingdom from January 24 – 25.
Contactless allows users to just tap and go, without the need for smart cards or top-up. The London system processes more than three million contactless taps per day. With contactless, transport agencies benefit from reduced operational costs and increased customer satisfaction. During his presentation, Hill will provide insights into the adoption of contactless bankcard payments based on data analysis from the London system over the past 12 months. He will also address the payment system as part of a wider ticketing strategy, as well as the technology, lessons learned and challenges.
In addition, Cubic will exhibit other payment technologies at Stand #A26. Experts will be on hand to share how transport agencies are leveraging Cubic’s One Account vision to manage demand effectively, reduce fare collection costs and open new revenue streams. One Account is driven by Cubic’s industry-leading back office, integrating account-based ticketing, closed-loop smart cards and open-loop bankcard payments on a single, cloud-based and open platform.
Other product demonstrations will include:
- A single integrated reader for contactless bankcards, smart cards and QR codes.
- Remote, secure, real-time control of gatelines.
- Future concepts, including the gateless gateline.
Hill will present at the following session:
