We are in the midst of a data revolution in the transit industry. More and more technology now exists to track our bus locations and measure key performance indicators — but how can the data revolution support better transit planning? Learn how technology companies like Remix are using the latest mapping tools and open data, such as the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) and the United States census API, to build dynamic planning software to enable better transit planning and decision-making. We will share how these latest mapping technologies have powered better tools for planning, and discuss how better planning technology can impact and improve how we do Title VI, regional collaboration, and public engagement.
YPT will be hosting an interactive workshop and friendly competition that brings together transit wonks, transport enthusiasts, and mapmaking for learning-by-doing and networking.
We will have some laptops on hand, but we encourage you to bring your own if possible.
