Cubic Transportation Systems provides advocacy and partnership in museum campaigns
SAN DIEGO – March 17, 2016 – Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS), a business unit of Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB), received an award of recognition from Transport for London (TfL) for its long-standing support of the London Transport Museum.
The museum explores the story of London and its transport system over the last 200 years and is regarded as having the largest collection of urban transport displays and exhibitions. Cubic has been partnering with the museum for more than 25 years and sponsors various events and activities including the Cubic Theatre, Tube150 – a year-long celebration of London Underground’s 150th anniversary in 2013 – and this year’s “Transported by Design” exhibition celebrating the role design plays across the transport network.
“Cubic is an invaluable partner in supporting the museum’s mission of education and preservation of London’s magnificent transport history,” said Sam Mullins, director of London Transport Museum. “This recognition is well deserved and reinforces the spirit of community this institution brings to our city, and its role in engaging the imaginations of both future transport users and career seekers.”
“We have always appreciated the opportunity to contribute to such an important part of London’s culture and history, particularly to support our long-time customer,” said Roger Crow, executive vice president and managing director for CTS Europe. “Cubic is closely connected to the evolution of London’s transport history – from magnetic tickets to the Oyster card, and today with contactless bankcard payment across the network.”
