๐Ÿ‘‹ ๐ŸšŒย In this online event, the MobilityData team will explain how to implement GTFS-Flex.

GTFS-Flex has been officially adopted into the specification, with record participation from our key contributors and the community: 46 organizations in 17 countries over 6 continents. We hosted multiple working group meetings and with the support of community contributors, GTFS-Flex has been tested in real-world settings, and then officially adopted in GTFS, after eleven years of development.

๐ŸŽ‰ We’re excited to offer riders the value of flexible and accessible on-demand transportation with GTFS-Flex thanks to our community and contributors!

๐Ÿงญย What is GTFS-Flex?

Imagine traveling in a new city, and you’d like to reach a rural area that only offers an on-demand bus service. You check your preferred trip planner app and canโ€™t find a viable public transportation option, so you end up renting a car. It would be a shame not to use public transportation when itโ€™s within reach.

Flex is a part of GTFS that allows riders to discover Demand Responsive Transportation Services. This is especially exciting for rural transit providers who can look to start or expand flexible transit services with the confidence that riders can find those services more easily.
