Project Description

The Google Transit project is designed to integrate the Clarksville Transit System (CTS) routes into the Google Transit System.

Google Transit provides a framework to analyze and predict the best route possible, increasing the convenience and reliability of local transit. This project aims to boost passenger numbers by providing riders with the exact information they need to quickly navigate their city via public transportation. To accomplish this, data on routes and stops were provided through our collaboration with the Clarksville Transit System. Technologies used to build this project include Python, ArcMap, and Microsoft Excel. Python was used to read and write files according to an algorithm which figures the stop times and positions of each stop. ArcMap was used for drawing and plotting shapes which directly correspond to the bus routes of CTS. Microsoft Excel was used to control tables of shape and stop data to output CSV format files.

Upon completion of this project, anyone with internet access can easily navigate to their next destination via public transportation!
