SAN DIEGO, Calif., Oct. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Cubic
Transportation Systems, a leading integrator of transportation technology and
services provider for intelligent travel solutions, has delivered the on-time
installation of its Bus Hardware Subsystem (BHS) for the New York Metropolitan
Transportation Authority MTA Bus Time®, the authority's Customer Information
System for bus location and arrival times that will be accessible to riders
using an internet browser-based map, a mobile phone-based application and a
text message-based service.

Cubic completed the BHS installation on 620 buses serving Manhattan, with a
daily ridership of nearly half a million, to support the Bus Time go live date
of Oct. 7. As part of the BHS, Cubic has delivered its new Mobile Validator
that will function as the on-board computer for the system.

By end of this year, Cubic will complete BHS installation on approximately
3,200 additional buses serving Brooklyn and Queens. The MTA awarded Cubic a
contract for nearly $27 million in February this year to support deployment
across the three boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.

MTA Bus Time was implemented on the Staten Island and Bronx bus fleets last
year by a different supplier, in keeping with the MTA's decision to promote an
open architecture and multiple supplier approach on the program.
