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.

http://microformats.org/discuss/mail/microformats-discuss/2005-October/001595.html

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.

Schedule page: http://www.toronto.ca/ttc/schedules/61S.htm#AVENUE%20RD.%20at%20WILSON

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&direction=0&day=1&page=1

New Jersey Transit

Rail Schedule Interface (results include transfer info + rates): http://www.njtransit.com/sf_tr_schedules.shtml

Bus Schedules: http://www.njtransit.com/sf_bu_town2town.jsp?Center=Town

MTA (NYC) subways, trains, buses

http://www.mta.nyc.ny.us/

LIRR Train Interface: http://lirr42.mta.info/index.asp

Metro North Train Interface (includes peak/offpeak info, travel durations) http://as0.mta.info/mnr/schedules/sched_form.cfm

Google Transit Feeds

Future Thoughts

This probably belongs more in a transit-table-brainstorming page, but until more examples are fleshed out and previous formats are researched, we're sticking future thoughts here.

Tufte Transit Graph

An application that read a standard transit-table microformat and produced a Tuftesque timeline grid would be very nice for transit users.
