Welcome to TransitWiki.org

San Diego Metropolitan Transit System Trolley

TransitWiki.org is developed and maintained by transit planners for transit planners. The goal of the site is to facilitate information transfer among California's transit agencies to accelerate the successful implementation of cost-effective strategies to improve transit service. On this site you'll find basic information about strategies, examples of their implementation, and links to reports and guidance from the American Public Transportation Association, the Transit Cooperative Research Program, University Transportation Centers, Caltrans, and local agencies.

TransitWiki.org was originally created by the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies and funded by the Caltrans Division of Mass Transportation's Statewide Transit Strategic Plan project. UCLA and Caltrans maintain no responsibility for site content contributed after September 27, 2012.

Getting Started

This Alpha version is a draft version of a site that will be finalized in September. The draft version is incomplete, but is meant to sketch an example of the final resource so that Caltrans staff and other project stakeholders may provide feedback. Only the featured articles listed below have been completed to near-final versions. The remaining content on the site serves as placeholders.

Finding Information

The site has two navigation options: a hierarchical category tree and a web of links between articles
