Empire State Development announced today that Cubic Transportation Systems, Inc. has officially opened its customer experience center, which will support New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (MTA) new tap-to-pay system. The high-tech system, known as OMNY, will eventually replace the MetroCard on the MTA, which is North America's largest transportation network, serving a population of 15.3 million people in and around New York City. Cubic plans to create more than 33 new full-time jobs over the next five years at the Sweet Home Centre office park in Amherst.  The 20,000-square-feet space on Dodge Road is the company’s first investment in Western New York.
