How to Provide Open Data

1) Publish your schedule data as a GTFS feed. Google publishes instructions on how to create GTFS feeds.

2) Provide an official URL where your feed can be downloaded. This can be a URL on your agency site or a URL to a third-party authorized to host your feed. Note: a simple way to provide an official URL is to upload your feed to GTFS Data Exchange and use the provided url.

3) Send email to transit-developers@googlegroups.com with the URL of your feed. Note: this is a public mailing list.

4) Submit GTFS feed location for inclusion on GTFS Data Exchange. This helps developers find the URL where your data is published.


Is your local transit agency missing from GTFS Data Exchange? Please contact them directly and ask that they make their data available to their riders. A list of agencies and their contacts can be found at www.citygoround.org
