Next steps for the project

January 2nd, 2014

This website was created to remove the complexity of searching for public transport information, especially abroad. There is still a lot to do to bring it to the point where it will be a real help to people.

Here are the exciting next steps for the project:

  1. Add new functionalities such as full timetable view and editing.
  2. Improve the design to make the website as lovely and easy-to-use as possible.
  3. Establish a non-profit company.
  4. And the bad news… Add advertising on the website. I do not want to rely exclusively on donations for many reasons; the main one is that I don’t want to cannibalize the main OpenStreetMap project which has much broader aims. But let me stress out that the objective is not to overload the website with advertising. I will strive to keep it reasonable and in proportion, as well as give these ads some relevance by featuring small-scale, local businesses located along public transport routes.
  5. Launch the website in multiple languages.
  6. Enable database download.
  7. Foster a worldwide user community that checks if the data is correct and keeps it up-to-date.

Now online!

Hello world 🙂

After 4 and a half years in the pipeline, openpublictransport has opened today.

The objective of the site is to contribute to the advancement of public transport and help people seize opportunities by providing simple, easy-to-use public transport data.

The world is smaller than ever. We can move as freely as we ever could. Now, how can we plan more easily our trips? How can an on-the-spot dream become possible? How can we find local shops, restaurants and services during a journey? How can we optimize transport time?


Where could public transport bring you today?

There is still a lot to improve on the website. Hopefully it is the beginning of an exciting journey!
