Getting Started

  1. Review the GTFS-ride specification to see the full list of files and fields.
  2. Take a look at GTFS-ride example files to see what GTFS with GTFS-ride data looks like.
  3. Determine which GTFS-ride files your are needed for agency's ridership data.
  4. Optionally, use the node-gtfs-ride tool to convert Automated Passenger Counter (APC) data into GTFS-ride board-alight data.
  5. Create your GTFS-ride feed.
  6. Use the GTFS-ride Feed Validator to test your feed.
  7. Publish your validated GTFS-ride feed and use the Ridership App to visualize your agency's ridership data.
