Introduction

GTFS-flex is an extension of the General Transit Feed Specification designed to enable trip planning for various types of demand-responsive or paratransit service. While GTFS-powered feeds offer convenient information on fixed route, scheduled service, they are not designed to show demand-responsive service, leaving users in certain areas with an incomplete picture of their options. The Vermont Agency of Transportation is working on a GTFS-flex specification to bring rural transit and paratransit to apps like Google Maps.
