Real Time Transit Data changing Trip Planning With Open Trip Planner

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority teamed up with AmigoCloud to create a multimodal open trip planner (OTP) implementation for Santa Clara County, CA.  By injecting large amounts of real time transit data into the trip planner, VTA and AmigoCloud have fundamentally changed how transit trip planning operates.  Focusing on inter-modal trip planning capabilities and real time transit information VTA has provided an innovative experience for existing and potential transit riders.  VTA is able to use 100% of the data collected by the OTP to improve transportation in Santa Clara County.  Providing multi-modal opportunities to the community will improve transport opportunities for all.  The project is based on open source software and its currently available on the VTA website; tripplanner.vta.org
