The Project (Overview)

The OneBusAway open source project is a consortium of representatives from public sector  transit agencies, commercial firms, academic research representatives, and interested individuals.  The goals of the OneBusAway project are:

  • To deliver robust real-time applications that meet the needs of transit providers and academic researchers
  • To foster an expanding and dynamic community of users, both commercial and academic
  • To build productive, effective partnerships with other open source transit and like-minded projects such as OpenTripPlanner, 1-Click, and Tiramisu Transit.

The OneBusAway project is led by a Board of Directors which is elected at the annual OneBusAway project meeting, which is typically held in Washington, DC (with a web and teleconference option) on the Sunday that starts the Transportation Research Board (TRB) annual conference.  The code base for OneBusAway is managed by a technical committee appointed by the Board of Directors to ensure that the code base is professionally managed and controlled.
