Transit Data Tools

There's no easier way to explore and start using GTFS data.

Manage transport data from the ground up

We've leveraged our considerable expertise in the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format into a suite of tools that help agencies across the globe create, upload and validate GTFS feeds. Originally developed as a pair of applications known as gtfs-editor and gtfs-data-manager, our updated platform has evolved into a robust and streamlined application designed to handle nearly any data or administrative workflow.

Create GTFS data from scratch without any data headaches

Archive, validate, and host multiple versions of GTFS

Get notifications when partner agencies update their data

Deploy feeds to cloud-hosted OpenTripPlanner servers

Quick and easy GTFS editing

Our editor tool allows creation and editing of transit GTFS data, the format used by thousands of cities and transport operators around the globe. GTFS data powers the majority of trip planners (e.g., Google Maps) as well as Conveyal Analysis, our advanced transit scenario planning tool. Our data manager allows you to manage multiple versions of multiple GTFS feeds, find potential errors in feeds, and deploy them directly to OpenTripPlanner packaged with the latest OpenStreetMap extract.

Streamline your workflow

Our feed manager tool enables point-and-click command of OpenTripPlanner servers and complex multi-user data workflows. Users can administer test and production server environments to keep trip planner services in sync with the latest data updates and test how new service appears in a live trip planner. External data providers can share, validate and test GTFS changes.

Improve regional coordination

Conveyal's transit data tools are ideal for regional agencies or governments that work with agencies that come in many shapes and sizes. Here are a few of the benefits for regional coordination:

  • Stay in the loop with daily automatic GTFS fetches for the entire region
  • Create and manage multi-agency GTFS feeds
  • Publish an entire region's feeds for third-party data consumers (e.g., app developers)
  • Explore service metrics for any given date at AM/PM peak service periods
  • (Coming soon!) Integrate schedule data with GTFS-realtime to validate and deploy to trip planners
