Thank you same goes for us we just like to stay under the radar as we say. My Director and Trimet folks have a long history dating back before GTFS.

What is "DOT"?  Why are you looking examples for?
If I understand correctly, DOT means Department of Transportation.

Ellwood, my information is much more limited than other folks on this list, but I know that Trimet in the Portland, Oregon region was a heavy user of open source software. If you are able to get in contact with folks at that agency, they may be able to provide more guidance.


Hope this helps! I wish you the best of success with your research.
