This webcast presented the various options for web-based transit trip planning tools.  CUTR recently completed a technical assistance project for a start-up local service provider that aimed at developing ridership markets via an online trip planner. Options discussed included self-hosted vendor products, third party ‘lifestyle’ applications powered via open GTFS data, and new open-source software systems.  Beyond Google Transit, what can transit agencies provide to their riders and those considering public transportation, to allow more control and a richer set of options for journey planning? The webcast concluded with the presentation of a step-by-step action plan for implementing these web-based tools that local service providers or regional transportation authorities can adopt.
