Through projects funded by the Florida Department of Transportation Public Transit Office, ServiceEdge Solutions professionals in conjunction with the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) developed the Transit Boardings Estimation and Simulation Tool (TBEST) software. TBEST is a multi-faceted GIS-based modeling, planning and analysis software which integrates socio-economic, land use, and transit network data into a unique platform for scenario-based transit ridership estimation and analysis.
TBEST scenarios include modifiable transit networks, service characteristics, fare policy, socio-economic growth parameters, transfer stations, stop amenities, park-n-ride and many socio-economic and land use variables. To leverage transit agency investment in developing GTFS network files, the TBEST GTFS Interoperability tools provide a seamless interface to import and export GTFS networks.
