  3. 3. City of 12 million people 70% of all trips made on public transit SUPPOSE AND YOU WANT TO Take a bus somewhere or Identify a suitable location for a new transit route or station
  4. 4. YOU’LL NEED A MAP!
  5. 5. 35% of the world’s 100 largest cities do not have complete transit route maps 92% of the world’s largest lower-middle income cities (25 out of the largest 100) do not have complete transit route maps
  6. 6. THE EXPERIMENT Create cities’ first integrated, multi-modal transit maps and databases using a data standard that is not remotely intended to solve transit challenges in developing countries… the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS)
  7. 7. WHAT IS GTFS? • Open data standard Route Type Route ID Route Name Bus 123 A to B … … … Route ID Route Name Route Type 123 A to B 3 … … … Effectively, taking existing data types and adjusting column names and encoding
  8. 8. WHY DO WEGTFS? • Growing # of developers are creating innovative solutions to transit challenges, leveraging this standard. • In theory, an investment in an application in one city can be adopted in any other city that has adopted the same standards. In business and international development, this is a very powerful concept!
  9. 9. WHY DO WEGTFS? • 800+ uniform transit datasets available to you RIGHT NOW: http://www.gtfs-data-exchange.com/
  10. 10. WORLD BANK GTFS-BASED PROJECTS Manila, Philippines Zhengzhou, Jinan, Nanchang; China Haiphong, Vietnam Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia Mexico City, Mexico Sao Paulo, Brazil (new) Cairo, Egypt (new)
  11. 11. WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED (1) GTFS databases do have the potential to help developing cities overcome, for the first time, challenges they had faced for many years; and (2) GTFS databases are very difficult to establish and maintain in developing countries.
