Transit Table Examples

Authors

Acknowledgment

Thanks to Kevin Marks for suggesting this need for a microformat on the microformats-discuss list and providing the Caltrain example.

Problem Statement

Problem: how to markup transit tables for trains / light-rail etc. in such a way that aggregation and navigation of schedules across varying transit systems becomes possible.

Examples

Caltrain

http://caltrain.com/timetable_effective_10_10_05.html

TTC (Subways, Buses, Light and Electric Rail)

Interface: http://www.toronto.ca/ttc/schedules/index.htm

Note the horrifying frame and pulldown based interface.

Air Canada (Airline)

http://www.aircanada.com/aco/flights.do

This is fairly typical of many airlines -- a form-based query is needed to get to the interesting stuff.

Go Transit (Trains and Buses)

Interface: http://www.gotransit.com/PUBLICROOT/NewVersion/lstNser.asp

Schedule page: http://www.gotransit.com/PUBLICROOT/NewVersion/pubnsch.asp?table=01
