Open Data From Saskatoon Transit
The City of Saskatoon has resources available for developers to create applications for desktop, web or mobile devices.
Saskatoon Transit Real Time Data Feed
GTFS realtime is a feed specification that allows public transportation agencies to provide realtime updates about their fleet to application developers.
What data is accessible?
There are three types of data available in the live feed:
- Trip updates: a description of whether buses are on-time, late, or early,
- Service Alerts: changes or disruptions such as detours or moved stops, and
- Vehicle Positions: GPS locations of buses.
What is the General Transit Feed Specification?
The General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) is an open format developed by Google and now used as an international standard to incorporate transit information into applications that include geographic data. Because this is an open and freely available format, anyone can use the data to create their own applications.
