GTFS-ride is a feed specification that allows public transportation agencies to describe and assess service consumption. GTFS-ride has arisen as a necessary complement to GTFS and GTFS-RT, which describe the kinds of service provided by a transit agency. The Oregon Department of Transportation is funding GTFS-ride specifications to describe occupancy, boarding, and alighting per stop. This will create a standards-compliant data stream for analyzing transit usage. This data is also a prerequisite for assessing transit-corridor person delay, a metric which can be used to prioritize investments in Bus Rapid Transit projects.

How do I get started?

  1. Review the standard at spec.gtfs-ride.org.
  2. Take a look at GTFS-ride examples.
  3. Create your own feed based on existing GTFS feed and ridership data.
  4. Use the GTFS-ride feed validator to test your feed.
  5. Publish your validated GTFS-ride feed.
