Our system serves as the centralized hub to aggregate, manage, control, and disseminate transit real-time data including service alerts, vehicle locations, and arrival predictions for all transit modes for an agency or multiple agencies in a region. 

The system allows an agency to produce a comprehensive set of General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS)-realtime feeds that is consistent and up to date, even during service disruptions.

Generate consolidated feeds

The system takes in one or more GTFS-realtime feeds from agency systems, such as a CAD/AVL or train tracking system. Feeds are combined together into a consolidated feed for vehicle positions and trip updates. The system can be used by an agency that runs a multimodal network, or multiple agencies in a region. 

Reach more customers

TRANSIT-realtime is fully integrated with GTFS-formatted schedule information, automatically tagging all real-time data including trip updates, vehicle positions, and service alerts with GTFS identifiers. Agency users and third-party developers alike can integrate with the GTFS-realtime feeds and API, allowing real-time data to reach more customers. 

Service alert integration

When TRANSIT-alerts and TRANSIT-realtime are deployed together, all GTFS-realtime feeds are generated with common GTFS identifiers for trips, stops, and routes. Creation of certain alert types in TRANSIT-alerts generates corrected GTFS-realtime feeds from TRANSIT-realtime, improving consistency for the customer. 

TRANSIT-realtime provides data to agency customers every day at well known transit agencies including:

  • TransLink (Vancouver, BC)
  • King County Metro (Seattle, WA)
  • Metro Transit (Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN)

IBI Group led the design, development and implementation of the MBTA-realtime system to manage service alerts, vehicle locations and arrival predictions for all its modes, including bus, subway, light rail and commuter rail. 

Our mobility ecosystem

All of our mobility-focused products are designed to work seamlessly together as part of our TRANSIT Data Suite, but are also available as stand-alone solutions. Just like our transportation networks, our smart systems need to connect with one another to offer stronger flexibility in all aspects of urban movement.
