Intelligent Public Transit through IT

Intelligent Public Transit through IT

Every day, those of us who depend on public transit expect it to get us where we’re going inexpensively, safely, and with the reliability and consistency of a utility. How has mass transit changed from the past? How is IT transforming public transit now and for the future with regards to offering real time statuses on arrivals/departures, connecting with riders via social media, offering information over the Internet, et al? What innovations are being contemplated or deployed to improve today’s commuter experience? What could our transit systems learn from global transit solutions? What transit system is doing the best job of moving people?
