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



However, The Raja Passenger Train Company (https://www.raja.ir/) is an associate of the IR (Islamic Republic of Iran Railways), and manages its passenger trains. On their webpage, you can search for trains, but we couldn't find the data in bulk. We couldn't tell whether the data provided is up to date or not, no meta-data, but we managed to do recent searches and got results back. Results include data, departure time, ticket prices, but not arrival time, thus we did not consider the data to meet the above criterion.

Reviewer's addition - Timetables can be found here for Raja train in a PDF format. Changed the submission source.
