Cubic Transportation Systems, Inc. said Thursday it has completed installation of Miami-Dade Transit’s EASY Card automated fare collection system. The system began operating early this month at the agency’s 22 MetroRail stations, as well as in roughly 900 buses.

The company says it completed the installation in 15 months. The company says it also integrated an automatic passenger counting system on the Metromover.

Cubic's Nextfare Central System provides  backend administrative and revenue management capabilities. "Nextfare gives our customers the tools to better manage the data that allows them to adjust their services to meet their customers' needs as well as to manage their operating costs," said Richard Wunderle, senior vice president and general manager for Cubic Transportation Systems. 

"This project has been a partnership from the beginning, and we give credit to both our project team and Cubic for driving this to a successful launch," said Harpal Kapoor, director of Miami-Dade Transit. "We're confident our customers will be thrilled with the convenience the EASY Card offers."

Cubic Transportation Systems, Inc. is a subsidiary of San Diego based Cubic Corp.
