== Dissemination Methods for Public GTFS Datasets ==
After the transit agency has created the GTFS zip file and decided whether or not to include data use guidelines, it can be shared with application developers so that applications (e.g., Google Transit) can use the data.
=== Global Directories ===
GTFS data is typically made publicly available by sharing the data at a publicized URL. Developers and consuming applications can download GTFS data from the specified URL.

Transit agencies with GTFS data should consider making this data public to best leverage their investment and maximize the availability of applications based on their GTFS data<ref>[https://www.dropbox.com/s/jq2ko64j2eth5mt/The%20Many%20Uses%20of%20GTFS%20Data%20%E2%80%93%20Opening%20the%20Door%20to%20Transit%20Applications-postTRB4%20-%20changes%20accepted.docx?dl=0 The Many Uses of GTFS Data]</ref>. The data can be made available on the websites listed above, as well as at the individual agency websites. Trinity Transit<ref>[http://www.trinitytransit.org/gtfs/ Trinity Transit. "Google Maps and Mobile Applications."]</ref> is an example of a small agency that has chosen to make GTFS publicly available through its website, as has HART<ref>[http://www.gohart.org/developers/ Hillsborough Area Regional Transit. "Build your own HART apps."]</ref> and Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) in the St. Petersburg/Clearwater area of Florida<ref>[http://www.psta.net/developers/ Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority.
