An overview of the Public Transit toolbox

The Public Transit toolbox contains tools for converting, displaying, editing, and analyzing public transit data. Several tools convert between General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) datasets and feature classes and tables. Other tools perform analysis using public transit schedule data.



The tools in the Analysis toolset support analysis using public transit data.


The tools in the Conversion toolset support the conversion of General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) datasets into feature classes and tables that can be visualized in a map, used as input for further analysis, or used to construct a network dataset. Some of the tools allow you to create or update GTFS files. GTFS is the only worldwide standardized format for public transit data. It includes locations of transit lines and stops as well as schedules.
