OneBusAway Production Deployments

OneBusAway Beta Deployments

Before OneBusAway is fully deployed in a region, beta versions are set up to allow testing by a smaller group of users.  San Joaquin, CA is currently in beta testing, as is Lappeenranta, Finland.  After these beta deployments are fully tested, they typically become production deployments.  Other pilot project initiatives have included a partnership with Code for America, in September 2012, through which the Detroit DOT launched a “TextMyBus” service and a developer API based on OneBusAway.  That’s the exciting part of OneBusAway – any developer can set up OneBusAway for their city.  These developer deployments 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.
