The Announcement

According to the Company, the app will be supported by its API portal provided on Cubic's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud platform enabled via the Company's collaboration with Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) for its Azure cloud environment. Moreover, the Company's open APIs will enable third-party devices to securely interact with TAP cards for authentication, top-up or debiting card and account balances, which could be further used by commuters for ride or bike sharing, parking and fare subsidy programs.

The traveler app from Cubic will help smartphone users in multiple ways, including the feasibility of ordering a virtual TAP card for the ability to tap and pay with a smartphone, or receive account balance and related service alerts via push notifications and in-app alerts, along with real-time tracking of rides. The app would also help with integration of fare subsidy programs and enable the unbanked to load cash at participating retailers and TAP vending machines.

TAP is currently the largest regional smart fare payment system in the US with over 2 million active TAP card holders, spending over $320 million annually and accessing over 450 million riders annually across the network. The Company has also agreed to deliver a merchant app for retailers who sell and load fare products on TAP cards. The app will deliver access to the TAP product catalog and enables retailers to select from the list of available pass types and stored value amounts. Post successful payments, retailers use NFC reader/writer interface native to an Android tablet, phone or accessible point of sale terminal.
