Cubic and Metro produced the state-of-the-art mobile application, which brings together virtual fare payment, TAP card management, trip-finding, multimodal program information and more, in one easy-to-use app.

President of Cubic Transportation Systems, Jeff Lowinger, said:

Cubic’s partnership with Metro has been a collaborative effort to continually deliver innovative solutions that simplify journeys for Metro riders. The TAP app on Android ensures a safer, more convenient way to travel on Metro. Riders now have a TAP vending machine on their Android device and their entire account and journey can be managed from their device.

By adding the TAP app on an Android device, riders can “tap and ride”, holding their device near the TAP validator upon boarding a bus or train and the fare is deducted immediately. The TAP app allows users to manage their TAP accounts and various multi-modal programs, such as Metro Bike Share, in addition to planning their journeys with a regional trip planner.

This Android release follows the iPhone and Apple Watch launch last September.
