Transit Table Examples
- Tantek Çelik
Thanks to Kevin Marks for suggesting this need for a microformat on the microformats-discuss list and providing the Caltrain example.
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.
TTC (Subways, Buses, Light and Electric Rail)
Note the horrifying frame and pulldown based interface.
Air Canada (Airline)
This is fairly typical of many airlines -- a form-based query is needed to get to the interesting stuff.
Go Transit (Trains and Buses)
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
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
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.
