</includeonly><noinclude>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 supporting the development of GTFS-ride specifications to describe occupancy, boarding, and alighting per stop. This will create a standards-compliant data stream for analyzing transit usage. This  Applications for GTFS-ride are undergoing development.
