BART Improves Equipment Outage Feeds

BART converted their elevator and escalator outage tracking feed from using a manually input system to an automated system tied into their work-order system. This feed is now polled every minute and the results are displayed on the website. Web Master Designs updated the BART API to show this information and incorporated that feed into the BART website.

BART and TPC Switch to Drupal

With their current content management system (CMS) being discontinued, the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) and The Phillips Collection (TPC) asked Web Master Designs to help them pick a new CMS and help manage the migration of their sites. After extensive analysis of available CMS products for these large sites (BART has 2,700+ pages, and TPC has nearly 2,000 pages plus 15,000 objects in their collection and library), both clients ultimately decided to go with Drupal. We helped manage the migration projects, facilitated exporting the content in their current website, and helped integrate third-party data feeds and services into the new Drupal websites.

BART Updates QuickPlanner

As part of a project to improve their QuickPlanner trip-planning tool, BART requested new enhancements which included adding some new fields as well as improving the scheduling service and transfer locations. Web Master Designs took the lead on defining the new scope, providing project management of the overall project and integration of the new QuickPlanner results into the BART API and website.

BART Contra Costa County Extension Opens Soon

As part of a number of system-wide expansion projects (including Silicon Valley, Livermore, and East Contra Costa County), the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) is preparing to open two new stations, extending the Pittsburg Bay Point/SFO - Millbrae line out to Pittsburg City Center and Antioch. Adding these new stations to the BART API and handling trip requests before the new line opens was handled by Web Master Designs in preparation of the new stations opening.
