In July 2009, the Executive Office of Transportation launched the Developers Page as part of the Patrick Administration’s commitment to creating a modern, efficient, and customer-friendly transportation system.  The Developers Page provides information and data from Massachusetts’ transportation agencies and authorities useful to developers interested in creating mobile phone and web-based applications that will deliver information more efficiently and effectively to customers.

Data released through the Developers page includes MBTA and RTA route and schedule data, MHD and MTA planned construction event data, RMV branch wait time feeds and a variety of other information.

To build on this effort, the First Annual MassDOT Developers Conference is scheduled for Saturday, November 14th, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. The Conference is free and open to the public.  In addition, the 2009 Developers Challenge will inspire developers to create both applications and data visualizations. The two top submissions will receive a CharlieCard valid for one-year of free travel on the MBTA, in addition to recognition at the Conference.
