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.
This site is based on the MediaWiki software that powers Wikipedia and many other sites across the web. If you're familiar with how to navigate or edit Wikipedia, then TransitWiki.org should be straight forward. If not, see the MediaWiki FAQ. The UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies expands and maintains the TransitWiki.org community, with funding from the Caltrans Division of Rail and Mass Transportation. Transit stakeholders across the state can contribute the site following our guidelines. TransitWiki is an implementation tool of the File:California STSP - Recommendations for Caltrans.pdf
