Optibus is committed to bringing cloud-centered technology in an open data platform to the mass transportation industry worldwide, and we’re excited to announce that we’re joining forces with the Open Transit Initiative to further our shared values of an open transit ecosystem, collaboration through data standards, and continuous innovation. 

Public agencies and private operators alike have suffered enough from limited technology options and data access – and Optibus is eager to work with the Open Transit Initiative to change that.

“To nourish freedom of movement and sustainable communities, we need a transit ecosystem that’s innovative, agile and collaborative. Optibus is thrilled to join the Open Transit Initiative and work together to fulfill that vision,” said Optibus CEO and co-founder Amos Haggiag.

The Open Transit Initiative is an ecosystem of cloud-centric technology partners and transit agencies dedicated to moving cities more efficiently through interoperable systems and data standards.

The project, led by Swiftly and a coalition of like-minded partners committed to common data standards and cross-vendor compatibility, is guided by a new way of thinking about transit that enables agencies and operators to freely integrate with the tools and data they need.

We look forward to working with the Open Transit initiative to bring openness and innovation to an industry historically underserved by technology.
