CSUD received a new Rockefeller grant “Towards a Data Standard for Paratransit” in partnership with the Department of Computing and Informatics at the University of Nairobi, the Civic Data Design Lab at MIT and Groupshot. As part of this work, we are partnering with the World Bank to hold a meeting on “GTFS for the Rest of Us” in Washington DC on November 12, 2013. Participants will look at data collection efforts for transit (paratransit) in Dhaka, Manila, Mexico City, Nairobi and a number of Chinese cities. The workshop will also explore whether the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format works for these systems, whether it needs modification or a new standard needs to emerge. Finally, it will explore how to create sustainable open transit data systems for rapidly growing cities across the globe.Conference details are here.
