TICKETING: Fare payment technology company Cubic Transportation Systems and Intel’s journey planner development business Moovit are to co-operate to develop ‘look, book and pay’ technology for multi-modal journeys.

The project builds on a partnership announced in January to integrate Moovit’s Mobility-as-a-Service APIs with Cubic’s Traveler app.

‘Currently, the trip planning and payment process of public transport is largely disjointed, resulting in rider confusion and uncertainty’, said Nir Erez, co-founder and CEO of Moovit. ‘Enabling people to plan and pay for mobility services through one app makes getting around much easier, and will help shift them from using private cars to public and shared transport.’
