You’ll never walk alone

As a widely adopted, yet not officially endorsed standard, GTFS has many competitors. Some of them are referred on the portal of Data Standards for Public Transit. The site is in French, but Google Translate is around the corner. I’m happy that more and more people are starting to look into how to improve the public transportation.

Among the many standards, the portal has pointers to the following:

  • real-time data – SIRI, used in France, Germany, UK and northern countries
  • data-exchange format – NEPTUNE (France)
  • trans-European format – NETEX
  • European data model – TRANSMODEL
