This geographic tool allows us to convert GIS route and stop layers and their associated properties (route alignment, stop location, span, schedule, headways) into the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) data feed format. Agencies can use GTFS feeds generated in-house for an array of projects, including public-facing trip planners (such as Google Maps or OpenTripPlanner), accessibility analyses, and Title VI service equity analyses.

Example Application: Foursquare ITP created the entirely new GTFS layer for the BaltimoreLink transit network redesign in Baltimore, MD, and used the tool for comparative analyses, generation of unique bus stop signage, and an online comparative trip planner application, which was deployed during public outreach and education to allow the public to easily understand how their trip would change in the new system.
