  • MassDOT Developer's Meeting

    December 15th, 2010
    boston, mbta, transit  [html]
    I went to the massdot developer's meeting last night. The main things I was excited to hear were that they expect to add predictions for subways at near terminals this summer and commuter rail real time locations in march. They suggested that app developers consider doing something to display relevant t-alerts, which I may do. It was nice to meet the developers of catch the T/bus, where's my mbta bus, and excursion, and talk for a while with daniel choi of openmbta and andy monat of mbtainfo.
