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
There has been a lenghty dispute over this data, as it's maitained by CHAPS, a commercial company. CHAPS was ordered to open the data. They put it on a FTP, with no metadata and no licence. It's a collection of a thousands of zip archives.
Bus schedules are available in JDF format (a CSV like structure), train data is a bunch of PDFs.
Apparently, CHAPS doesn't want to let go of it's monopoly.
