AVAIL was awarded a grant by the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to create an Application Programming Interface (API) that is capable of converting MTA’s Subway system data, GTFS Realtime, on the fly into SIRI, the format used to publish their bus data.

This API is based off the gtfs-data-exchange.com API, however instead of simply providing a link to download a zipped GTFS file, we allow you to directly access the information in these files as well as additionaly information that we have processed using these files. Currently we have pulled the subset of the data files from gtfs-data-exchange.com which are from official agency in the United States. This pares the possible list of 692 GTFS feeds down to 263. We are using a slightly modified (less strict) version of the gtfsdb-load tool created by Mike Gilligan at trimet to process these zip files into the database serving our API. Using this tool we have so far been able to successfully process 127 of these 263 GTFS feeds. We are working on improving the number of feeds that are successfully processed into our database, however some feeds which do not meet certain strict guidlines outlined in the GTFS Specification. Additionally we are only using the most recent GTFS datafile for each agency. We intend to add archived datasets in the future.
