Presented by Eric Ziering, Director of Software, Cambridge Systematics, Inc.
Google Transit and the widespread adoption of the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) has had a huge impact on the availability of Transit routing and scheduling services and information,
both from Google and third parties such as HopStop.com. The effect has been to provide
the public with high-quality information services (well beyond what was imaginable a decade
ago) while lowering the cost to transit agencies. In his presentation, Mr. Ziering will tie together a
number of transit-related information systems projects that are now in progress or have recently
been completed by Cambridge Systematics that illustrate this theme of cost-effectiveness through
the innovative use of information technology. Together, these projects showcase the potential to
maximize the effectiveness of existing transit agency resources through innovative use of information systems.
