Introduction to the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) and Informal Transit System Mapping (Self-Paced)

Introduction to the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) and Informal Transit System Mapping (Self-Paced)

The course objective is to empower participants to create, manage, and use GTFS feeds, particularly in cities that do not already have complete electronic systems for storing and managing their transit system data. The course methodologies are based upon the World Bank and others’ successful experiences in creating GTFS feeds in resource-constrained environments and reflect the latest work and knowledge in open data and open-source software.

Hi, Kingsley. Well, you've come to the right place! I would recommend viewing the introductory video -- it's short, but it tells you everything you need to know about what the GTFS is, why it is important, and how it is being used for transit planning and operations. If you still have questions and are unsure whether you still want to dive into the rest of the course, give us a shout. We hope you find the course both delightful and informative!

Where is this introductory video? It does not appear on the page that I can see.
