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


  • There's a legal provision that says that if someone asks for the data the transport provider is obliged to give it (in Dutch: Besluit personenvervoer 2000, Hoofdstuk 1, Artikel 10.)
  • There's a private entity '9292' which licenses out the data they've got from all the providers in a non-open way (current old entry)
  • There's another, more community-oriented grassroots entity 'OpenOV' that is providing the data under CC-0 (proposed new entry). Neither of these entries are officially valid for the Index, because they are not from a government source. So should technically be rejected. However, there is a legal provision that gives people the right to obtain the data, even though they don't provide it themselves
