Transport for Christchurch

Case Studies /
Transport for Christchurch

In the wake of the Canterbury earthquakes, Media Suite was engaged by the Christchurch Transport Operations Centre to develop a long-term, web-based communication channel for the travelling public in the greater Christchurch region.

The challenge

Initially the availability of data was limited to roadworks and road closures however over the last 4 years Media Suite has worked with CTOC to develop strategies and tools for collecting, augmenting and communicating a broad range of traveller information to the public via a range of channels.

Many solutions

The engagement with CTOC and NZTA has led us to develop tools for coordinating roadworks, broadcasting incidents, publishing to social media, measuring journey times and congestion as well as building APIs to open data to other developers. Many of these tools are now being utilised nationally.
