For the past eighteen years, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has designed and developed the TBEST transit planning software to support transit service and strategic planning with data driven analysis of transit service, markets, and ridership demand.  On Friday, October 30, 2020, NICR staff met with Rodney Bunner, President of ServiceEdge Solutions to demonstrate TBEST analysis features and investigate research opportunities which could provide transit agencies with the tools and workflows needed to address complex planning issues related to COVID19 and general ridership decline over the past several years.  The group discussed the potential for integrating new tools/methodologies which would enable TBEST to evaluate on-demand transportation services, first mile/last mile trip connectivity, transit signal pre-emption and many others.  Tune in for more information on this collaboration!
