A consortium model for addressing challenges affecting the entire industry—such as data standardization and technology and design barriers—would be an efficient and effective means of driving innovation through persistent communication and actionable collaboration.
Interoperable Transit Data: Enabling a Shift to Mobility as a Service
Public transit agencies, private transit providers, and travelers create and use enormous stockpiles of precise transit data. However, this data is currently largely siloed. The momentum of software and mobile business is quickly making this data more interconnected and available.
WHY IT MATTERS
Greater sophistication and interoperability of multimodal transit data can create increased ridership for transit agencies, greater lead generation for private transit providers, and better planning tools for city government. Improvements in multimodal transit data can also enable greater collaboration between the public and private sectors, supporting the transition to shared ownership of expensive assets.
