  • Abstract:
    Public transit agencies have employed intelligent systems for determining

    schedules and routes and for monitoring the real-time location and status of their

    vehicle fleets for nearly two decades. But until recently, the data generated by

    daily operations in the transit system were only available to managers and

    engineers inside agencies. Transit riders could only consult static information

    when planning trips, primarily through printed or online timetables or maps.

    Where dynamic train or bus arrival predictions were accessible, riders could only

    see this information on fixed signs at transit stations or stops. With the popular

    adoption of smartphones and other mobile technologies transit riders gained the

    capacity to access information anywhere and at anytime. Some transit agencies

    have responded by publicly releasing disaggregated data files for schedules and

    real-time feeds of vehicle locations. These agencies have thus empowered civic

    entrepreneurs to innovate in delivering transit information to riders through

    mobile applications and other technologically-assisted means.
