The General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS), originally called the Google Transit Feed Specification, was developed by Google as a format for sharing public transportation information such as bus stops and bus routes.

Tags

Looking on Taginfo, some of the tags that are currently in use include: gtfs_id=*, gtfs_stop_code=*, gtfs_route_id=*. However it doesn't appear that anyone has stored the agency_id. There's also the possibility that a single stop could have multiple carriers (operators), and therefore should be able to have multiple pairs of agency_id and stop_id.

Data Sources

  • GTFS Data Exchange - Data available for 1000 transit agencies (as of 9 Dec 2016), though licensing varies. Soon to be shutting down.
  • Google's list of GTFS data sources
  • TransitFeeds - open source aggregation project of GTFS data.
  • transit.land - commercially funded aggregation of GTFS data.
  • [1] - french open data GTFS

Conversion of OpenStreetMap and GTFS

  • osm2gtfs - An extendable python script to query OpenStreetMap data about public transport, combining it with time information provided from a different source and convert it into the GTFS format.
  • GO-Sync (aka gtfs-osm-sync) - a desktop tool to synchronize GTFS feeds with OSM
