GTFS-Flex Working Group Meeting

👋 After a 2 month break, we can finally resume the GTFS-Flex working group meeting. This meeting is intended to facilitate the adoption process of GTFS-Flex as described in this Pull Request on GitHub.

In the last 2 months, we held 2 meetings concerning the inclusion of GeoJSON in GTFS. Here were some highlights:

🌐 In total, we had 73 participants from across the globe
🤝 We reached a soft consensus on moving forward with GeoJSON as the format for zones [locations.geojson] within the GTFS-Flex extension.
⏸️ The use of shapes and stops will remain unchanged for now as these seem to be needing more discussion.
⚠️ During this meeting, we will discuss the remaining outstanding items that are currently blocking the extension from being put to a vote.

⏳ The meeting will be held at 5pm EDT on November 1 ,2023. We understand that this is an unusual time for many of you but as a commitment to our global stakeholders in all timezones, we promised to accommodate them too when the time came.

🚂 Ideally, we can find consensus on these issues and then draw a clear path towards a vote for adoption.

Meanwhile, we would like to invite you to join the GTFS community in the following discussions:

♾️ Continue the GeoJSON in GTFS discussion on GitHub.
