David Wear, general manager of EMEA, Cubic Transportation Systems, said:

With the ongoing Leap expansion throughout Ireland and the introduction of additional bus operators, there will be significant change to Leap operations within the next five to ten years. Our team has the proven transport experience and perspectives to actively adapt to the changes in the transport landscape, and we are confident in our ability to deliver the highest quality service.

Cubic’s delivery team includes a mix of new partners, such as An Post, Microsoft and EasyTrip, as well as incumbent suppliers, including Payzone and Paragon ID.

Cubic’s solution will streamline interfaces and enable a low-friction transition as demonstrated in transition programs for Transport for London, Metropolitan Transportation Commission in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Chicago Transit Authority.

To date, over five million smart cards have been issued through the Leap system with over 167 million journeys served by Irish Rail, Dublin Bus, Luas, Go Ahead Ireland, Bus Éireann and a number of licensed private bus operators.

Cubic started its work with the NTA in 2019 when it was awarded a contract to deliver a scalable mobile ticketing system for Ireland.
