Friendly Public Transport Format (FPTF)

This repo outlines a format for APIs, libraries and datasets containing and working with public transport data. See the spec and the list of JS modules.

It tries to keep things simple:

  • JSON and ndjson only
  • a flat, intuitive representation of public transport timetables & infrastructure
  • conceptually inspired by the de-facto standard GTFS

Specifically, it trades

  • efficiency for consumability: GTFS sets feel like database dumps.
  • completeness for ease-of-use: Only basic attributes are required, most is optional.

Things still missing:

  • concise definitions
  • clear naming & recommendations for optional data
