DCist: WMATA On Google Transit: "Not In Our Best Interest"
DCist: WMATA On Google Transit: “Not In Our Best Interest” – This is an example of the critical mass that can build around consumers wanting access to their data (in this case, the scheduling data of public transit) in different ways, once it is available in other places. Do I have to go to the WMATA Web site to do all of my transit planning, or can I use the built in application on my iPhone also? If other public utilities have already begun collaborating, shouldn’t ours? Aren’t there analogies in health care (I’m thinking “revolution of rising expectations“).
