With my partner, Sean Óg Crudden, I develop, implement, and maintain open-source software to help transit agencies make the most of their transit data. We have developed the first machine-learning bus arrival prediction method available. The real-time predictions can be displayed in the open-source platforms, OneBusAway, which is available on the Web, IOS, Android, and text-message, and OpenTripPlanner. These tools can be used by anyone and are compatible with any type of hardware available. Open-source software, therefore, has the agility to address the evolving needs of transit agencies.
