Prerequisite: None
This course provides students with an understanding of the uses of information technology in transit planning, policy development, and administration of services. It combines theory, concepts and practice by promoting student competence in applying office software applications to transit problems. It explains how and why digitization of data matters for the effective and efficient operation of transit systems, and how such “civic” data is enabling new expectations and behaviors among the general public.
