The workshop CSUD organised with the World Bank, the Civic Data Design Lab at MIT, the School of Computing and Informatics,University of Nairobi and Groupshot led to a successful discussion with Brian Ferris of Google to update the global data standard GTFS, This modification of GTFS will allow data for paratransit systems such as those found in Nairobi to fit in the global standard that allows mapping onto Google maps or Open Street Map among many other applications. This is a major step forward in bringing the benefits of standardized open transit data to more cities across the globe. More details on on the conference and the specification are here.
