QCOSTARICA – The Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes (MOPT) – Ministry of Public Works and Transport – will become the first public institution to have an “open data” platform, allowing anyone to access information to issues related to public transport.

Sebasita Urbina, deputy minister of Transport, said that the information can also be useful to researchers and developers of “apps”, making the information easier to use.

“One of our main concerns is what can we do for more people to use public transport, we know that some of the problems of infrastructure can be solved with more efficient services, but we found that people do not use public transport due to lack of information,” said Urbina.

The portal improves the ministry’s transparency, providing data from bus routes and stops nationwide and information on taxis across the country, for example, that is automatically updated when changes are authorized the Public Transport Council (CTP).

Urbina added that the first version is already available, the information gradually increasing with updates over time.

Editor’s note: The report is from Casa Presidencial. It contains no link to the open data platform. Nor could we find a link on a search on the MOPT website. This report will be updated when the link is available.
