Cubic Awarded Over US$700 Million Contract to Continue Service to UK Capital

San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

Transport for London (TfL) has today confirmed the award of its ticketing and fare collection contract, starting in August 2015, to Cubic Corporations UK subsidiary Cubic Transportation Systems Limited following a competitive tender. The terms of the contract, which are denoted in pounds sterling, are for seven years with a value of over $700 million. It includes an option to extend the contract for a further three years, giving the contract an expected value of over $1 billion.

The announcement means the continuation of the partnership between TfL and Cubic which has seen the introduction and network-wide roll out of the iconic Oyster card. Recently, contactless payments have also increased choice and convenience for the millions of travelers who use the London network every day.

Electra includes an initial stage plus extension options up to a total ten-year term. Central to the requirement is the use of technology to reduce costs and improve service to help cope with the increased demand from Londons burgeoning population.


Cubic has been associated with ticketing and revenue management in London for over three decades, earning unrivaled understanding of the intricacies of one of the worlds busiest and most complex urban travel networks. The organization has supported TfL and its predecessor, London Transport, through many major events, including the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and the Queens Diamond Jubilee. During this time, the performance of the public transport network garnered universal praise.

Roger Crow, senior vice president and managing director, EMEA at Cubic Transportation Systems, says, We are delighted that our bid to continue our work in London has been successful. Each member of our team, both here in the UK and around the world has contributed to our work with TfL and I am extraordinarily proud of what we have achieved.

From a technology perspective, Cubic is at the forefront of the smarter travel movement, and harnesses its NextCity vision of true integration of payment and information systems across multiple transport modes to drive innovation in the transportation sector. The new contract will see Cubic continue its long-term collaborative relationship with TfL to bring innovation in transportation to London over the next decade.

London is unique among the cities Cubic serves and our entire team is committed to providing the best service and most appropriate innovation to support TfL in its mission to deliver a pioneering, world-class service for its citizens, says Steve Shewmaker, president of Cubic Transportation Systems.

Bradley H. Feldmann, president and chief executive officer of Cubic Corporation, says, Our Transportation Systems team puts extraordinary effort into serving its customers every day, while simultaneously developing concepts for the future of urban transportation that resonate with city authorities because they are achievable, affordable and offer tangible benefits to all parties. Todays news recognizes that effort and the entire Cubic organization congratulates Steve and the CTS team on its success.
