Cubic Transportation Systems launches the first credit card and smart device-compatible gates on Queensland’s Heavy Rail Network, giving more payment options to commuters

Cubic Corporation today announced its Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) business division’s new ticketing system in the Australian state of Queensland has reached a major milestone, with Translink passengers now beginning to use credit and debit cards and smart devices to pay for travel on the Ferny Grove line of the passenger rail system.

Sally Stannard, Head of Translink says:

A trial of Smart Ticketing on the Ferny Grove rail line in Brisbane will lead to full deployment across the entire passenger rail system, with buses and ferries to follow.

John Karaboulis, Cubic Australia Managing Director, said:

Queensland should be congratulated for this landmark project – installing the world’s most modern and largest contactless ticketing system right across the state, an area larger than Great Britain and more than twice the size of Texas.

The Smart Ticketing technology that Cubic is now installing in Queensland is the most advanced available, sharing common DNA with the new OMNY system in New York, as well as Cubic projects in London and San Francisco.

The deployment of credit card and smart device payment options to Brisbane’s trains follows the success of Smart Ticketing on the Gold Coast Light Rail system, with more than one million taps made since the system was launched in December 2020.

Mr Karaboulis says:

Commuters love the speed and convenience of the Smart Ticketing payment options. Based on the enthusiastic commuter responses to the contactless systems that Cubic has installed in London and New York, we are confident Brisbane train commuters will also be excited about this new technology, which is going to make public transport more accessible and even easier to use.
