Tracking planes visually stunning, why not track Paratransit usage?

Just a neat example of giving life to massive amounts of geolocation data. Think about doing this with Paratransit journeys. Maybe showing distinct phases  or occupancy levels using distinct color. For example, how much is outbound travel verses actual miles with a passenger.

How might this be achieved?

I’m assuming that the RTC doesn’t GPS track its paratransit vehicles, if they did then use that raw data.

Maybe recreation from a log of dispatch, then use a mapping service to decide the route taken.

I wonder if something like Maptimize would be useful? They’re the ones behind the demo site one million tweet map that displays the last million tweets over the world in real-time.
