eXpressTransit is a traditional client-server application compatible with Microsoft® Windows® on the client workstations with a required SQL Server™ database on a network-accessible server.  Cloud database functionality is also included with eXpressTransit if you have a subscription using either Microsoft® or Amazon® services.

eXpressTransit also supports Microsoft SQL Database and Amazon Relational Database Service cloud database services if your transit agency has a subscription to either of them.  We would be happy to setup a subscription to either of these excellent cloud database services for you to ensure compatiblity with eXpressTransit and data security, however you would be responsible for the monthly service fee (varies based on usage).
