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



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. https://enquiry.indianrail.gov.in/ntes/ -- real time train information https://www.irctc.co.in/ - some train information
