GTFS_ Sharing Your Transit Data with the World


TransLoc Architect and the GTFS Standard

How can cities get accurate transit information into the hands of the public and at the same time improve the public’s mobility options? This question that has undoubtedly been exchanged many times amongst transit agency officials when discussing their data.

Insert GTFS (General Transit Feed Specification), a standardized format for providing transit scheduling data. GTFS has become the standard language used to get routes and stops to show up in mobility apps, think Google and Apple Maps.  While it may seem simple when seen on a map, the creation and upkeep of GTFS feeds can be a daunting task.

To take taxing and enormous excel files out of the task of GTFS feed intake and upkeep, TransLoc’s Architect product was born. This software tool makes it infinitely easier to:

  • Create and improve GTFS data

  • Provide real-world maps as the backdrop for defining/altering maps and routes

  • Spot and easily edit data errors

  • And much more!
