BC Transit

BC Transit uses FME to integrate disparate databases into one, interconnected system that powers decision making and innovation.

Data from multiple sources was integrated, validated, and transformed using FME to create a unified spatial data management system. The intelligence derived from the integrated data gives personnel new insight into the relationships between assets, ridership, time and location – in a timely manner – allowing them to innovate and implement new initiatives for a better transit system for everyone.

The project has resulted in better intelligence for enhanced analytics, resulting in improved service and increased ridership. By implementing FME, the team has also seen an overall increase in efficiency and productivity of the organization. Tasks that once took days now take mere minutes.

BC Transit manages 81 transit systems in more than 50 communities across the province, serving a ridership of over 50 million annually.

"The building block nature of FME's repeatable workflows help to ensure that we can sustain our Google Transit offerings while affording us the time to develop other initiatives as well." - Michael Grant, Manager of Monitoring and Forecasting, BC Transit
