Layers: import GIS - both heat maps and point data
In order to better understand the impact of a route, various information layers such as population density and poverty rate can be overlaid onto the map. This helps ensure that the system is reaching the people and places it needs to, and any changes are compliant with [[Transit and Civil Rights|Title 6 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964]]. In addition, the Remix staff can create custom layers using GIS data provided by the agency— both heat maps and point data. For example, one agency in Australia created a shapefile for projected population growth to better plan for their future service area.

Transit systems aren’t lines on maps; they are ways for people to get around a city. Remix includes a rider surrogate isochrone tool called Jane. You can put Jane anywhere on the map, select a time of day, and see how far she could travel in 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes. This is helpful both for intra-agency planning and public outreach.
