What We Do

The mobility industry’s biggest data challenges can only be solved if we work together. MobilityData facilitates the industry to develop data specifications and tools.


See examples of how GTFS and GBFS impact travelers across the globe.

GTFS is used by over 10,000 transit operators in more than 100 countries

12 organizations from 6 countries collaborated to pass the base implementation of GTFS-Fares v2

Our GTFS Schedule validator is used by major trip planners including Google Maps, Transit and Moovit

General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS)

GTFS is the de facto standard for representing transit passenger information. MobilityData identifies the GTFS community’s highest priorities and facilitates the open voting process for adopting new changes.

To make learning GTFS as easy as possible, MobilityData has launched a new version of gtfs.org. Here you can find up-to-date information on the specification requirements and best practices.

GTFS Data Quality Tools

Millions of passengers need high quality data to make decisions about how to plan their trip. See data quality reports with the MobilityData’s GTFS validator and GTFS Realtime validator. Check that signage and names are accurate with the GTFS Grading Scheme. Open and parse GTFS-Realtime feeds with the GTFS Realtime Language Bindings.

Mobility Database

Discovering transit data feeds from across the world is a challenge. The Mobility Database is a directory of global GTFS and GTFS-Realtime feeds. You can browse feeds to share in your trip planner or help with research analysis. Search feeds by location, status, and features like GTFS Pathways, Flex and Fares.

General Bike Feed Specification (GBFS)

GBFS is the de facto data exchange standard for shared mobility information. MobilityData identifies the GBFS community’s highest priorities and facilitates the open voting process for adopting new changes.

GBFS Data Quality Tools

High data quality is critical for passengers to make well-informed travel decisions. With the open source GBFS validator, you can select a feed and see a data quality report.

Use the GBFS validator


It is time consuming for trip planning applications to find GBFS data from operators around the world. With systems.csv, you can browse feeds to share with passengers or conduct service analysis.
