In an article for GovTech.com's Digital Communities, Tod Newcome wrote about "3 Advances in Transit Technology" that have had a major impact on the growth of urban transportation. In the article, he discusses how "transit agencies' focus and spending are beginning to shift as technology, such as mobile computing, social media, GPS and data analytics, have opened up new ways to improve service and, hopefully, attract more riders." In particular, the city of Portland stands out, despite being the 24th largest metro population in the United States, for its continued investment in transit and transit technology. Portland currently has the "11th largest transit system, when measured by passenger trips." This article is part of a five part series on govtech.com/dc/ about the future of transit technology and the impact it will have.
