OSM data is voluminous. It is possible to represent it in ways that are both simpler and more compact than existing formats.
Working to refine all the complicated algorithms of travel is vital to improving commuter experiences.
If there is a bus connection that always takes 5 minutes longer than the rail line, we still want to know about it. If four different bus routes run along a common trunk, we want all of them to be visible within the same itinerary as alternatives if they offer comparable travel times.
The time it takes to connect between routes has a huge impact on the user's experience of a transit system. We've built a tool to explore connection timing.
We're building better tools to manage transit data.
We are proud to announce the release of Transport Analyst, a web based application for transport accessibility analysis powered by OpenTripPlanner.
Trip planning services usually tell you the fastest or easiest way to reach a destination given a specific departure or arrival time. Accessibility analysis requires understanding the range of potential travel times. We've recently added functionality to OpenTripPlanner that allows efficient calculation of best, worst and average times.
CarFreeAtoZ is a personalized trip-planning and comparison tool that Arlington County, Virginia beta-launched this fall as part of its Transit Tech Initiative. Now, beta testing is wrapping up and feedback is being incorporated. Here are some of the top priorities identified.
For over a year now, Conveyal has been working with Arlington County to build the next generation of transportation demand management (TDM) outreach software. This month, Arlington is beta launching CarFreeAtoZ, the first public deployment of that platform.
We previously introduced you to the Transitive.js library, a web-based visualization platform created for the Arlington Transit Tech Initiative. Today, we look at how it can serve as a resource not just for that project but for online transit mapping in general.
