Trillium work in talk on transit data future

The Trillium-developed Redwood Transit System website and its use of Google Transit was featured in the updated version of a presentation the Portland TriMet CTO gave at APTA’s TransITech conference. See “Leveraging resources for customer information by exposing transit data” below.

The TriMet presentation about how TriMet has benefited from sharing their data with, and actively reaching out to, developers, and encouraging other transit agencies to do the same. This will make transit information more available, and tools for accessing and manipulating it less expensive and easier to use.
