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



Data at national level are incomplete. Also, its machine readability is questionable - most of them are in xls, but some include various footnotes which makes machine readability complicated.

Since 2001, complete database is available only to one company which supplies IT services to Ministry of Transport - Chaps. Other companies consider this a monopoly and a won a lawsuit - the court stated that Chaps should is subjected to Freedom of Information Law. If the FOI request is successful, the data might be available soon. (info updated on Nov 8, 2013).
