Today's travelers expect a richer travel experience with innovative services offered at an accelerating pace. NextBus builds the foundation for a Transit Management-as-a-Service environment enabling rapid evaluation, deployment and support of modern transportation capabilities.

Digital signage is the fastest and most cost-effective delivery mode for travelers to have access to what they need to know and when. Cubic draws on its NextBus RTPI expertise to develop a service offering that comprises of a cloud-based and multi-modal CMS hosted and maintained by Cubic for displaying timely, relevant information to travelers.
- Driver Control Unit (DCU): public safety is a vital concern of airports and improving driver efficiency contributes to protecting the community, passengers, drivers and vehicles.
