GTFS: A tool for better transit

Hosted November 17, 2020

This webinar was on the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS), the data standard that allows transit services to be listed on travel planning sites like Google and Apple Maps and apps like Transit and Moovit. This is an important technology for all transit providers to embrace to allow further innovation in services.

These guest speakers presented to help us understand GTFS, how it can help riders plan trips and transit providers improve services, and on some of the tools you can use to implement data feeds for public consumption.
