"The power of Cubic and Mastercard's partnership demonstrates how we were able to combine public transportation data and insights derived from anonymized and aggregated transaction data to deliver a meaningful analysis on the impact of the event," said Matt Cole, president of Cubic Transportation Systems. "Public agencies often don't have ready access to the depth of resourcing in data science to conduct such a study around singular events. By providing these services in combination with the technical tools, we can help customers conduct deeper analyses on the impact to transportation and on merchants and the tax base to build on this year's success and improve the next.""Mastercard and Cubic delivered data analytics around a smart city policy intervention, serving as a springboard for future analysis for New York City," said Carlos Menendez, president Enterprise Partnerships, Mastercard. "By combining insights from city government, the private sector and academia we stand a better chance to address the pressing issues of managing traffic congestion and improving quality of life for residents and visitors alike." Urban Insights and Mastercard will demonstrate the Urbanomics Mobility Project on Mastercard's stand #C318 during the Smart City Expo, held at the Gran Via Venue in Barcelona, Spain.
