The Use of Web-based GIS Tools & GTFS to Support Transit Planning, Analysis and Multimodal Projects • Chris Wright, GISP • Senior GIS Analyst • GIS Unit • Transportation Data Section • Transportation Development Division • Oregon Department of Transportation • 2013 GIS in Transit Conference • October 17, 2013
Presentation Outline • Intro to Oregon, ODOT, Transit & GIS • GTFS & Existing tools • Challenges faced • Current & future opportunities
Oregon Transportation Plan 2006 The Goal – “Provide a balanced, efficient and integrated transportation system that ensures interconnected access to all areas of the state, the nation and the world. Promote transportation choices that are reliable, accessible and cost-effective.” - Oregon Transportation Commission
Economy & Jobs Policy Vision April 2012 “Transportation should balance pedestrian, transit and auto access to reduce dependence on autos and provide secure, convenient and affordable mobility for all citizens.” - Governor John Kitzhaber

GIS, Transit & TAPU • Transit: • Grants • Coordination with Transit providers • GIS: • Enterprise data • Application Dev • Maps • TAPU: • Travel modeling for MPOs GTFS
General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) GTFS defines a common format for public transportation schedules and associated geographic, fare, and service calendar information.
GIS & GTFS = Efficiency • The analytical work we do using GIS tools enable us to effectively meet our goals associated with optimal use of our highway system to safely and efficiently move people and goods. In times of shrinking resources, we can do more with less by utilizing GIS tools. The GTFS will help us do that. • - Becky Knudson, Senior Transportation Economist with the Transportation Analysis and Planning Unit
12 Gaps in Service Areas
Existing Challenges Which tool to use (TransGIS, FACS-STIP, ArcGIS O…) ? Data quality.. Tri-Met vs. the rest Integration with Legacy ODOT systems
Future Opportunities • Existing research project to develop statewide Transit Analyst tool (Open Trip Planner) • Apps & open source • Heightened collaboration between business lines (Transit, Highway, Planning, Maintenance..) • Evaluating “pop-up” ride share locations on ODOT ROW
Web tools – Externally Accessible • TransGIS: • https://gis.odot.state.or.us/transgis/ • ArcGIS Online: https://odot.maps.arcgis.com/home
