How can we improve regional connections (and convenience) for transit users and cyclists?
Like drivers, transit users and cyclists often travel relatively long distances to get to work, and cross several municipal boundaries. However, due to limited infrastructure, their routes are sometimes less direct. Some transit systems also require many transfers. How can we use data to identify the best routes and greatest opportunities to maximize convenience for these growing populations?
Improved trip planning and real time routing is important to all travelers. The ability to connect across modes easily is important for providing more travel choices. Many people may want trips that combine driving, transit, and non-motorized modes. For example, I may drive to drop a child a day care, park by a transit stop, then walk or ride a shared bike at the other end of the trip to my ultimate destination.
