About the Webinar:
OneBusAway is an open-source mobile app that provides real-time transit information. Previous research by USF added the ability to passively collect (via opt-in process) multimodal travel behavior data directly from OneBusAway users. Over the past year, USF and TTI collaborated on evaluating the temporal and spatial accuracy of OneBusAway on several different mobile phone models in real-world travel settings. This joint presentation by USF and TTI will present preliminary research findings from this collaborative effort.
