An overview of the Transit Feed (GTFS) toolset

The tools in the Transit Feed (GTFS) toolset support the conversion of the geographic portions of a General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) dataset into feature classes that can be visualized in a map and used as input for further analysis. GTFS is the only worldwide standardized format for public transit data. It includes the locations of transit lines and stops as well as the schedules.
