A Thorough Tour of GTFS: Creating, Improving, Sharing, Finding

For over 10 years, public transit agencies have been sharing their schedules with Google and others using the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS). This common format has enabled a wide range of apps, services, and businesses to be built around such data. Attendees will take a soup to nuts tour through the basics of GTFS, best practices, the mechanics of publishing, and how to work with other agencies’ feeds.
