We feel very strongly that third parties do a better job than we do at developing apps," said Josh Robin, Director of Innovation at the MBTA.
"I think it's up to those companies like Zipcar, Relayrides, and Zimride to really develop those tools, and there's nothing that prevents them from using our data in their apps," says Robin. "There's a lot of possibilities for opening up data and sharing data with one another in creative partnerships to find a way to make it work, and we're always looking for ways to partner with people. If one of those third parties came to us and said, 'how can we work together?' then we'd be more than happy to help them think through ideas to help make people's commutes easier."
Last month, Google announced that Google Maps would integrate real-time alerts for public transit in six pilot cities around the world-Boston included. This partnership with the MBTA will offer real-time transit updates for bus information including departure and arrival times, delay notices, and station information. "A big piece of what we've been trying to do for last couple years is make transit data ubiquitous-we see getting real-time data available through Google as part of that initiative," Robin told us.
"I think this is where the value in being open comes in, at least for public agencies; it can allow other services to better connect up with public transit options, and ultimately complete that transportation picture for people," says Robin.

Tour Guide: Joshua K. Robin, Director of Innovation, MBTA
This technical tour provided 12 young professionals with the unique opportunity to one of the most impressive and important MBTA facilities: the Operations Control Center (OCC) at 45 High Street. The OCC is the hub for the T's operations and safety-related communications. It is equipped with massive electronic monitors that closely track the positions of hundreds of subway and light rail cars on the Red, Orange, and Blue lines. A small group of YPT members received a behind-the-scenes, guided tour of this exciting facility, which was led by Joshua K. Robin, the Director of Innovation at the MBTA.
States Aim to Launch More Mobile Apps, 25 April 2012 [cached]
"I think it's always important for a government in a time of tight budgets," said Josh Robin, MBTA's director of innovation and special projects. "We need to look for the private sector to be involved in the solution, and this is an area where we have that opportunity."
The state takes a hands-off approach to give developers freedom. Consequently many of the MBTA's apps duplicate the same services, but not all are created equal. Robin doesn't find the plethora of apps problematic because the market will decide which gains traction.
