LA Metro NextGen Trip Planner

Project Overview

In 2018, Metro began the process of reimagining their bus system to better meet the needs of current and future riders through the NextGen Bus Study. The goal of the  NextGen Bus Plan is to implement a new bus network that is more relevant, reflective of, and attractive to the residents of LA County.

Our full-service agency friends at The Glue asked Eclectic Electric to create and build-out a cloud infrastructure for Metro’s publicly accessible trip planning comparison tool that allows riders to compare travel times using the current bus system with the re-imagined NextGen plan.
