DATA DRIVEN TRANSIT: Tech transforming bus operations

Transit Data as a Service

The secret to true innovation for transit agencies and operators

Data helps us to solve the problems faced by public transit and is the cornerstone of the best transportation systems in the world. It demystifies bus services and helps to increase bus usage. It allows transit providers to improve and demonstrate performance.

The challenge is that transit data isn’t always readily available in a usable format, or the accuracy of the data is unknown or can’t be trusted.
