Communicating Multiple Service Disruptions

PROJECT NAME
Communicating Multiple Service Disruptions

CATEGORY
Transportation

PROBLEM STATEMENT
How might we better communicate emergency, unplanned shuttle service to T riders in a way that allows them to clearly understand what to expect?

PROPOSED SOLUTION
Text-based descriptions of what's being shuttled doesn't scale well to extreme conditions when there may be four, five, or even more bus shuttles operating simultaneously. Could an image be generated from MBTA-realtime API output that succinctly shows what is affected and how? Could it be produced in a way such that it could be used by other applications?

PROPOSED BY
Dave Barker on behalf of MassDOT and the MBTA, dbarker@mbta.com
