New app helps rural systems use GTFS format

The National Rural Transit Assistance Program announced a new cloud-based application to help transit agencies convert their route and schedule data into the General Transit Feed Specification. GTFS Builder provides rural transit systems with tools and training videos to help them put bus route and schedule data into the format required by Google Transit and other online trip planners. “If you’ve thought about sending your system’s route and schedule data to Google Transit but haven’t been sure how to proceed, GTFS Builder is for you,” said executive director Patti Monahan in a statement. “Its well-organized and easy-to-use spreadsheet, plus step-by-step how-to videos, will get you through the process in no time.” The free application is available at www.nationalrtap.org.
