OneBusAway Experimental Deployments

OneBusAway demonstrations are often created by independent developers.  Through a partnership with Code for America, in September 2012 the Detroit DOT launched a “TextMyBus” service and a developer API based on OneBusAway.  Technology demonstration, or “tech demo”, implementations of OneBusAway have also been established in Washington D.C. and UC Berkeley campus.  Local developers often have a goal of attracting the interest of the local transit agency, which may then see the advantages of the system and adopt it for their region.
