King County Metro, the transit agency for the greater Seattle area, had an aging, unreliable PageMaker-based semi-automated system for producing timetable booklets.

They asked me to create an InDesign-based automated system that ingests XML from their HASTUS system and automates the booklet production.

I worked with King County Metro staff and GIRO engineers to design a complete system that automates the timetable booklet process, saving them many hours of work each time that schedules change, increasing accuracy and decreasing time to market.
