In July 2009, the Executive Office of Transportation launched the EOT Developers Page beta as part of the Patrick Administration’s commitment to comprehensive transportation reform and creating a modern, efficient, and customer-friendly transportation system.  

The EOT Developers page has released information and data about Massachusetts transportation agencies and authorities that might be useful to developers interested in creating applications to help customers.  Data release through the Developers page includes MBTA and RTA route and schedule data, MassHighway and MassPike planned construction event data, RMV branch wait time feeds and a variety of other information.

The Globe praised EOT's efforts to open data as "a smart 21st-century alternative to hiring some consultant who develops inelegant software at exorbitant costs.”

EOT is engaging developers in new ways as part of Governor Patrick's Civic Engagement agenda to encourage creative new ways for citizens to engage state government.  The EOT Developers use Twitter for updates, a Google Group, and regular meetings to engage developers. 

In less than two months, three iPhone applications have been built using this data including the MassTransit App, To a T and an RMV wait times application .

Last evening, Joshua Robin presented about EOT's efforts to open transportation data at O'Reilly Media's Ignite Boston 6.  Learn more about Ignite here.   View the presentation below.
