Timetables of major government operated (or commissioned) national-level public transport services (specifically bus and train). The focus here is on national level services (not those which operate only at a municipal or city level and which are not controlled or regulated by the national government). A 'yes' in any question will refer to both types of transport. However, if there is no national level service operated or regulated by the government for a given type of transport (for instance busses), then this type is ignored in this data category. Data submitted in this category should meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Time of operating
  • Time of leaving first station and arriving to the last station
  • Updated at least once a year

Data Location



Update 2015 - The site of the Nacional Secretary of Transport doesn´t have timetables in open data - http://www.transporte.gov.ar or in the national open data portal: http://datospublicos.gov.ar.

There is an app to track the line Sarmiento (train) in Buenos Aires (City and Province) but the data doesn't see to be available to the public. The application is available at the Ministry of Internal Affairs: http://www.mininterior.gob.ar/tramitesyservicios/apps.php

Update 2015 - There are different websites for each line (commissioned) with the time table. Trains are regulated by National Interior Minitstery. https://www.google.com.ar/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=horarios%20de%20trenes

There is also a site & timetable for long distance trains: http://www.sateliteferroviario.com.ar/horarios/ (This is a submission by Yamila Garcia)

Reviewer comments

Data is not easy to be found. Data avialable is in pdf. Some cities have developed apps to read their own data sets in a more friendly way.
