  11. 11. The Google Transit Feed Specification, as a lightweight data standard for transit geographic and schedule data, has quickly become an increasingly ubiquitous format. And you don’t have to be Google to use it.
  12. 12. We’re small and we can’t provide every customized solution people ask for…. making the data available is something that we’re very familiar with so that developers can develop the tools themselves. It’s like having an army of developers available to us. — Tim McHugh, CTO, Trimet [full interview at tinyurl.com/trimet-cto]
  13. 13. “The old limits of what unmanaged and unpaid groups can do are no longer in operation; the difficulties that kept self-assembled groups from working together are shrinking, meaning that the number and kinds of things groups can get done without financial motivation or managerial oversight are growing.” — Clay Shirky, Here Comes Everybody

  28. 28. By putting this data in a common format, it can really smooth the information sharing between agencies. …We need to make connections with them [other agencies], and a lot of that now is verbal or through printed material, and there is a great opportunity to actually shuttle the information back and forth to make it much more accessible when you’re planning service. — Tim McHugh, CTO, Trimet [full interview at tinyurl.com/trimet-cto]
