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


Public transport services in Ecuador are privately managed. There are no national-level government operated public transport services. Trains are operated by the government, though these are used only for tourism services and not for public transportation. There are other city-level public transport services operated or commissioned by local governments, like Metrovía in Guayaquil and Trolebus in Quito. This question was answered considering privately operated national-level public transport services (interprovincial buses). Most timetables are available in printed form, and some bus companies have it published on their websites.

Reviewer comments

The information provided is quite useful; however, I did edit this submission because the data comes from corporations, not the government.
