Developer Space – Open Data
Welcome to the Société de transport de l'Outaouais's (STO) Developer Space.
We are sharing our GTFS (General Transit Feed Specification) data with the developer community to enable the creation of rider information tools based on scheduled data.
This page has a link to download the GTFS data as a ZIP file. The data contain all the raw information from our system for planned schedules. These data make it possible to geolocate bus stops, identify each individual bus route and obtain the full details of planned schedules.
Give your imagination free reign and have fun! And please don't hesitate to tell us about the mobile apps and Web sites that you have taken the time to create with these data.
Below is an overview of the GTFS files provided:
- Bus stop positions (stops.txt)
- Bus routes (trips.txt)
- Planned timetables for each bus route at each stop (stop_times.txt)
- Service schedule (calendar.txt)
- Holiday schedule (calendar_dates.txt)
- Transfer points (transfers.txt)
- Accessible service (routes.txt)
The following information is also available:
The STO and its employees are not available for and cannot commit to offering support or guidance for users of its open data.
The STO recommends that, if needed, developers consult the many sources of information already available on the Internet regarding the use of GTFS files, such as:
Availability of GTFS files and updates
Whenever possible, the STO plans to make the GTFS data for planned schedules available two weeks before the date that the new assignments take effect.
Note that files are very likely to be updated between two assignment dates during the year.
