a new wiki for transit!

I've recently learned of a new resource for sharing knowledge and best practices related to transit planning: transitwiki.org. The project is funded by Caltrans and managed by the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies, and is a novel response to California agencies' financial constraints that have limited the ability of staff to travel and attend conferences. As you would expect, much of the content so far is drawn from contributors' experiences working in California, but the wiki contains quite a lot of generally useful information on a variety of topics related to transit funding, management, planning, and operations. For more information, visit the website or the project's new twitter account

    I also developed a wiki with my GreenCityStreets.com project. Here’s the link http://improve-public-transport.wikispaces.com/
    The wiki was designed to provide more information for people after they played my bus operations game (BusMeister).
    My goal was to develop tools for public transport agencies to use in the planning process (public involvement), but I was never able to find a transit agency willing to try it out. Everything is still online, but it’s a little clunky.

    I like the idea of social media using the knowledge of the user. At first glance there is still a lot of work to do to fill in the wiki. So, let’s go! 🙂

    Very cool. I wanted to make a wiki but never had the time.
