Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) Flexible Trip Planner (Report 0150)


This report describes the results of the Flexible Trip Planner demonstration project, part of the Mobility on Demand (MOD) Sandbox. Objectives of the project were to 1) specify and develop “GTFS-flex” data for all public transit providers in Vermont; 2) adapt OpenTripPlanner to search and visualize flexible trip plans based on GTFS-flex data; 3) work with the community of open source and open data transit developers to refine the above work; and 4) deploy a statewide trip planner demonstrating accomplishment of the above and provide a new tool for Vermont public transit riders, showing them all available services in the state. The combined effect of the results of this project is a demonstration that flexible transit trip planning is possible and practical in production trip planners described in this report.
