NJ Transit to offer open access to developers

Posted on May 13, 2010

On Wednesday, NJ Transit announced the launch of a new Developer Resources section of njtransit.com to provide third-party developers with direct access to service data for use in creating new trip planning software applications. 

 

The new Developer Resources section of the Website is designed to encourage the use of NJ Transit schedule data to improve customer access to information through new and innovative applications, including mobile applications, desktop applications and widgets.

 

Following a simple registration process, developers can download free schedule data in General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format. Tables available in the GTFS feed include stops, routes, trips, stop times, calendar and calendar dates. 

 

“By providing open access to schedule information in as many forms as possible, we are encouraging innovation among developers, who can create new tools to make it easier than ever to access travel information,” said NJ Transit board member Ken Pringle.
