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.
