pygtfs is a library that models information stored in Google's General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format. GTFS is a format designed to specify information about a transit system, such as a city's subways or a private company's bus services. pygtfs stores information in an SQLite database using SQLAlchemy to facilitate the storage of Python objects in a relational database.
pygtfs is a fork of @eoghanmurray's fork of a @andrewblim's gtfs-sql which is a fork of @bmander's gtfs. See the git logs for more fun history.

- SQLAlchemy 0.7.8. Used for all mapping of GTFS objects to the relational DB. You'll need to be familiar with it to read the code; the documentation is pretty solid.
- pytz 2012d. A few GTFS fields are expected to be in a tz time zone format.
- six. Used in order to support python2 and python3 in a single code base.
- docopt. Pythonic command line arguments parser, that will make you smile
Get setuptools if you don't have it,
clone the repo, and use
python setup.py install.
