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.
Smartly manage real-time transit data
Customers expect real-time updates about where their buses, trains, and ferries are and when they will arrive. For agencies, this presents challenges. Bus and rail data may be in two separate feeds. Even worse, when service alerts are issued for cancelled trips or closed stops, arrival predictions continue to show up. TRANSIT-realtime allows agencies to effectively address these and other real-time data management concerns.
TRANSIT-realtime provides data every day to agency customers of well known transit agencies including TransLink (Vancouver, BC), King County Metro (Seattle, WA) and Community Transit (Everett, WA).
Key features include:
Input and Processing
TRANSIT-realtime takes in one or more General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS)-realtime feeds from agency systems, such as a CAD/AVL or train tracking system. It combines the feeds together into one consolidated feed.
Full GTFS Integration
TRANSIT-realtime provides real-time alerts, locations, and predictions in uniform formats across transit modes via GTFS-realtime feeds and a web services API. This makes it easier for agency and third party developers to take advantage of real-time data.
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.
Our mobility ecosystem
All our mobility-focused products are designed to work seamlessly together, 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.
