AllTransitTM Data

AllTransitTM is a one-of-a kind robust transit dataset assembled for all transit stops, routes, and frequency in U.S. regions with over 100,000 people with scheduled bus, rail, or ferry service. CNT collected publicly available General Feed Specification (GTFS) data for 560 agencies, and compiled it for 264 agencies without GTFS from schedules and route maps.

AllTransitTM Performance Score

The AllTransitTM Performance Score measures more than just access to transit. It considers the performance of transit - connections to other routes, jobs accessible in a 30-minute transit ride, and the number of workers using transit to travel. All neighborhoods in cities with over 100,000 population are ranked and given a score from 1 to 10, and summed up for larger areas.

AllTransitTM Metrics

A set of metrics reporting the impact of transit are reported for neighborhoods, cities, regions, elective districts, and other areas. The comprehensive coverage of AllTransitTM provides a system-wide snapshot of the collective impact of large and small transit agencies on the topics of jobs, economy, transit quality, equity, and health.

AllTransitTM Gap Finder

The AllTransitTM website has a tool called the AllTransitTM Gap Finder which identifies areas where the transit service is less than typical for similar areas in the U.S. A Transit Service Gap refers to a neighborhood (for the purposes of this analysis a neighborhood is defined as a Census Block Group) where there is a larger average market for transit than the service provided.
