Improving Access to Transit Thru CrowdSourced Information

The purpose of this research is to facilitate the ongoing collection of information about potential areas of multimodal service and infrastructure improvements from the public that can be easily shared with transit agencies, departments of transportation, and city and county governments. This research will enable the capture of various types of data from actual users of public transportation via a real-time transit information system. Using this data, transit agencies, departments of transportation, and city and county government will be able to better target improvements to bike and pedestrian infrastructure for access to transit based on actual transit use and issues reported by the general public.
