Sustainability Via Big-Data Sharing

For example, when the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) released its data to the public, developers stepped in to create OpenMBTA, a free, open-source platform for delivering public transit schedules and real-time arrival and departure data via mobile devices and the Web. I don’t believe figures are available, but I’m certain the system has improved ridership, customer satisfaction, and the overall efficiency of transportation throughout the Bay region.
