Nigel Wilson on the role of information technology in improving transit systems

Presented by Transportation@MIT


Ticket punching by conductors has given way to fare cards swiped through machines — not to mention real-time GPS tracking of trains and buses, and network monitoring via computers. As part of MIT’s Transit Research Program, Nigel Wilson and colleagues have been taking advantage of a trove of data resulting from this digital transformation, working in London, Chicago, Puerto Rico, and Boston on ways to improve urban public transport.
