Welcome to the Florida Transit Information System (FTIS) website

About FTIS

Transit agencies rely on various sources of data to help plan, manage, and improve transit facilities and services. Some of these data include the National Transit Database (NTD) from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), socioeconomic data from the Census Bureau and local planning agencies, land use data such as those from the county tax appraisal offices, transit route data maintained by transit agencies, TAZ maps maintained by planning agencies, etc. These data from different sources are usually not readily available for use by transit agencies.

To allow Florida's transit agencies to make better use of these data for improved transit planning, the Public Transit Office of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) first contracted with the Lehman Center of Transportation Research (LCTR) at Florida International University (FIU) in 2000 to develop the Florida Transit Information System (FTIS), a user-friendly software system designed specifically for transit planning applications. The current version of FTIS includes the following three major system components:

  1. Integrated National Transit Database Analysis System (INTDAS): A web database system designed for the retrieval and analysis of both the urban and rural National Transit Database (NTD).
  2. Florida Transit Geographic Information System (FTGIS): A stand-alone web GIS system customized for the planning of Florida's transit systems.
  3. Automated Transit Stop Inventory Model (ATSIM): A hybrid mobile-desktop system for the collection, analysis, and maintenance of transit stop inventories.

Where applicable, FTIS comes with the necessary analysis data and has been envisioned as a one-stop database system for transit planning in Florida. In its tenth year of continued development and update, FTIS has become a major software tool for the transit industry, with many users from across the country. The INTDAS component in particular has been used by academia in the classroom; transit agencies for their in-house analysis; researchers, consultants, and practitioners for numerous projects; etc.

The FDOT Public Transit Office has generously made FTIS accessible to all at no cost. If you find FTIS useful in your projects or have suggestions to help further improve it, please do not hesitate to contact us by completing the form found on this page.
