SAN DIEGO, Calif., Sept. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Cubic
Transportation Systems, the system integrator and services provider for the
regional Clipper® smart card system, and the Metropolitan Transportation
Commission (MTC) announced the launch of a new mobile website for Clipper –
https://m.clippercard.com – giving customers an easy, on-the-go way to manage
their Clipper Card accounts from a variety of mobile phones.

The newly designed site gives Clipper Card customers the convenience of
checking their card balance, adding fare products to their cards, registering
their cards and ordering new cards, all using a mobile phone. This is an
example of Cubic's ongoing commitment of empowering travelers with actionable
and information-driven solutions, which is a core feature of the NextCity
vision.

The new site delivers account management functions in simple, easy-to-read
pages, optimized for mobile devices. The main website
http://www.clippercard.com will automatically detect when a patron accesses
the website from a mobile phone and redirect the user to the mobile website.

"Until now, the Clipper website has been challenging to use on mobile phones,
but now customers can do everything on the mobile website that they can do on
the Clipper website," said Carol Kuester, director, electronic payments, MTC.
"We're excited to offer this new contact channel with added usability to
navigate our website more comfortably and conveniently for our customers who
rely on their mobile phones."

Matt Newsome, vice president and regional director, West Coast, Cubic
Transportation Systems, said, "We are committed to providing the best customer
solution and service to MTC and the Bay Area transit operators participating
in the Clipper system, and this is one more example of our efforts to keep the
experience a positive one."

Clipper Card is the regional smart card system governed by the Metropolitan
Transportation Commissioner, the agency that plans, coordinates and finances
transportation projects in the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
Participating operators include the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC
Transit), Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART), Caltrain, Golden Gate
Transit and Ferry, San Francisco Bay Ferry, San Francisco Municipal
Transportation Agency, the San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans) and
Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA).

In addition to serving as the system integrator, Cubic operates the Clipper
Card customer call center, Clipper Card fulfillment and distribution,
technical help desk, the retail merchant network, and the transit benefits
systems for employer/employee management of transit subsidies.
