TIDES fans,

Here is some information that may be of interest:

In recent months, a coalition of transit agencies, cities, nonprofits, planning organizations, and state departments of transportation developed a set of principles for achieving greater interoperability in the technologies that power the mobility industry. 

This effort, known as the Mobility Data Interoperability Principles, represents a new and coordinated attempt to implement open data standards throughout the transit industry. 

The principles build off the successful ongoing work within the industry to develop and implement individual open data standards, but the principles represent a shift in bringing back room operations in transit to the forefront. The vision behind the principles is to improve the quality and accessibility of mobility data for all service providers, empower riders to meet their transit needs, and allow transit tech companies to innovate with the confidence that their solutions will be well-integrated into a complex ecosystem and market. 

The Mobility Data Interoperability Principles (MDIP) are detailed, along with implementation commitments, resources, and processes at http://interoperablemobility.org.

On Thursday, December 9 at 11 am (Pacific) you are invited to join in a townhall meeting on the MDIP.  Click here to register.

This session is designed to provide answers to common questions about MDIP and to give an opportunity for additional discussion about near-term actions that can be taken to achieve their vision.

Regardless if you are already among the co-signers or if this is your first time hearing about the project, this session will help you figure out where you fit in this effort. Attendees will gain a better understanding of:

  • The objectives that the MDIP are seeking to achieve
  • Why the MDIP are the right tool to achieve our objectives
  • What practical steps co-signers should expect to take in support of the MDIP
  • What resources are (or will be) available to co-signers to help us all succeed together

The session will run about 90 minutes and is free and open to attend. Please pass this invitation along to others within your organization  you feel they would benefit from attending. Registration is required and can be completed by clicking this link.
