What is transit data?
If you’ve looked at a bus timetable, planned a rail journey on your phone or used public bikeshare then you’ve used transit data. These datasets describe the public transit services available to a traveller; where they can access transit, service routes, timings, and pricing. Transit data describes in real-time the progress of active trips, answering questions such as: Where’s my bus now? When’s the next train? Is it crowded? How long will my trip take? How much will my trip cost?
