Pittsburgh Bus Bunching Project Features on CMU Students for Urban Data Analytics Website

Categories Analytics

Bus ClusterWhat began as a casual observation that Pittsburgh’s buses, when running late, often arrive in pairs turned into a data warehouse and empirical investigation. Fellow students Bhavna, Ranjana, Rohita, Enbo and I built a data warehouse to capture the real-time bus location data published by the Port Authority of Allegheny County. Our analysis of the data revealed that, indeed, buses do tend to “bunch.”

I’m excited to share that this project and its results are currently features on the CMU Students for Urban Data Analytics website.
