Pull out your phone, check if your bus or train is on time, and come to the
LivableStreets Alliance StreetTalk to learn how technology is improving
public transit. The Mass. Dept of Transportation Developers Initiative is a
ground-breaking program that hosts transportation data that can be used by
third-party software developers to build websites, mobile applications, and
other applications that deliver information more efficiently and effectively
to users of the Commonwealth’s transportation system. Since the first
developers meeting in the LivableStreets office, the initiative has led to
the development of numerous innovative web and mobile applications. Chris
Dempsey will describe how open source data and innovative collaborations are
helping Massachusetts travelers better plan their trips or find the location
of their bus.

*Chris Dempsey* is the Director of Innovation for the Massachusetts
Department of Transportation (MassDOT).  Before his current role, Chris was
Deputy Chief of Staff and Special Assistant to the Secretary of
Transportation. Prior to joining state government, Chris was a staffer on
the Patrick-Murray campaign, responsible for the campaign's volunteer,
student outreach and internship programs. He is a native of Brookline and
currently resides in Boston.
