We want the RTA to share their data so we can build smart apps!

      Transport for NOLA

      New Orleans, LA

We should open up the RTA's GPS, schedule, and route data so that mobile developers in New Orleans can build transit applications for residents. The transit authorities in New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. all do this, and developers have built all kinds of helpful applications. Better transit facilitates better economic growth, higher quality of life, and a more appealing city for everyone.

      Open date will increase the interest in public transportation in New Orleans and will help put us on the map as a world-class public transportation player.

      This is a no brainer! I'm not sure why the RTA would even need a petition for this. Convenience and accountability to the customer (and the tax payer) is always a good thing.

      Predictability needs improving, particularly with the streetcars.

      I want to invest in New Orleans, and live there full time again one day, I think expanding the RTA in every way is essential to the city's growth.

      Because making this data public makes it easier for current and potential transit riders to use the public transportation system in New Orleans.
