Evaluation of Software Platform Systems for Transit Service Route Planning for Statewide Applications

The goal of this project is to identify software platform systems for potential statewide applications for transit service route planning platform analysis. The specific project objectives include: (1) Identify existing software platform systems for transit service route planning analysis by conducting a state-of-the-practice survey of Florida’s transit agencies and by scanning the literature and the Internet. (2) Meet with transit service planners from transit agencies to learn about their software application experiences and needs. (3) Evaluate the general performances of select software platform systems using data from the software vendors. (4) Evaluate the output reasonableness of select software platform systems using local data gathered from local sources by the research team. (5) Identify appropriate software platform systems for potential statewide applications. (6) Create a checklist template for use by transit agencies when identifying and evaluating software platform systems. (7) Understand and refine preparation and process of local data sources and for evaluating platform systems and performing service change analysis.
