Kudos for Urban Insights
Campaign for Better Transport
Campaign for Better Transport has worked closely with Cubic Transportation Systems in the UK to make the case for transport decision-makers to make more use of data in designing their policies and planning transport networks. Using the wealth of data which is already being captured from all modes of transport is critical if we are to change the way we use transport infrastructure in this country. We welcome the Urban Insights initiative as another step in giving city planners the tools they need to plan and manage their transport systems, using data rather than theoretical models. We look forward to working with CTS on this initiative in a UK context.
– Stephen Joseph, Chief Executive
With more than half of the world’s population now living in urban areas, a seamless travel and transit experience is a key concern for users and operators alike. Data can provide critical insights to balance transportation demand with supply, and we welcome Cubic’s move to bring predictive analytics to this business with the launch of Urban Insights.
– Hany Fam, President, MasterCard Enterprise Partnerships
We congratulate Cubic on the creation of Urban insights and their focus on data, a crucial piece in helping to make our cities smarter using existing infrastructure. Here at RideScout we are always looking for technological improvements that can help people move in cities and we are excited to work with Cubic on the initiative.

Giro, a world leader in public transit software for over 35 years, salutes Cubic’s leadership in the creation of Urban Insights for providing big data predictive analytics consulting services. This is good news for the transportation industry.
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) have now achieved significant penetration. Although these systems generate a huge amount of data, few efforts are being made today to transform this data into actionable intelligence.
With its ITS expertise as well as its industry familiarity, Cubic is well positioned to lead such an initiative and will help bring big data and predictive analytics to public transportation. This initiative will benefit GIRO’s HASTUS customers by enabling them to feed HASTUS’ comprehensive decision support systems for optimizing resource utilization, from planning and scheduling to real-time operational decision-making with actionable intelligence.

UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering
Congratulations on the launch of Urban Insights. The UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering enjoys a strong partnership with Cubic Transportation Systems, and we look forward to continuing that collaboration as Cubic expands into new application areas through Urban Insights. Predictive data analytics is an important emerging field that holds promise for enhancing quality of service in a myriad of industries. It is exciting to see this new application for transportation.
As a member of the Jacobs School’s Corporate Affiliates Program, Cubic is a key strategic partner of the Jacobs School. In particular, Cubic works with us through research projects, student internship projects, innovation workshops, and Cubic members participate in our Masters of Advanced Study (M.A.S.) for professional engineers.
Big data is a major strength of UC San Diego and we are proud of our world-renowned faculty experts in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and accomplished research scientists in our San Diego Supercomputer Center. This fall we are launching a new M.A.S. degree program in Data Science and Engineering. We anticipate that this program, and all programs similar to it, will enjoy industrial relevance and commercial success.

I applaud Cubic's leadership in the formation of Urban Insights to bring predictive analytics to the industry - providing much-needed insights to help solve transit and mobility problems.

For transport systems to deliver their full potential, cities, agencies and authorities need to make informed decisions, based upon a thorough understanding of what their vast quantity of data means, and how it impacts throughout the entire transport network.
Cubic's Urban Insights has the genuine potential to become a 'game changer' by improving the efficiency within multi-modal networks and helping operators to take decisive action before problems arise, based upon its data gathering expertise, understanding of what the data means and predictive analytics. Urban Insights should positively contribute to intelligent decision making
