A proliferation of rules used by the Federal Transit Administration to validate public transportation data resulted in a system with expensive maintenance. A pilot program to test alternative solutions determined that machine learning can bolster current assessment capabilities with close to 100 percent accuracy. A follow-up assessment seeks to leverage cloud capabilities and integrate machine learning algorithms with existing systems.
