Civic Resource Group recently began work on an innovative data/asset management project for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro), the second largest transit agency in the nation. CRG is developing a first-of-kind web/cloud based Bus Stop Management System (BSMS) as a key component of Metro’s overall Bus Stop Usability Project which is being managed by TranSystems, a global transportation planning firm. The BSMS will utilize sophisticated mobile data and GPS technologies to collect and organize nearly 100 data points for each of Metro’s more than 25,000 bus stops.
