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

Comments

While timetables for trains are commonly available, for other modes of transport we could do with more easily available information. The data provided is public, still there is a "captcha code" facility which mandates human intervention in the search process. Due the heavy web traffic these websites are slow functioning. Marked as "no bulk download" / "not easily machine readable" due to capcha Real time train data is easier to find than timetable data. Cannot find open licence. http://enquiry.indianrail.gov.in/ntes/ -- real time train information https://www.irctc.co.in/ - some train information

Please note that erail.in is not an official government source.
