The Client: The County Connection (CCCTA) provides transit service throughout the communities of Concord, Pleasant Hill, Martinez, Walnut Creek, Clayton, Lafayette, Orinda, Moraga, Danville, San Ramon, as well as unincorporated communities in Central Contra Costa County, California.
The Project: BlinkTag worked with the County Connection to convert their transit schedule information from an excel spreadsheet into General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS).

One of the most popular applications that uses GTFS data is Google Map’s Transit Trip Planner. County Connection’s routes are now available on google maps website and on millions on smartphones.
