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



The Department of Transport and Communications published open GTFS data regarding the transport in the metropolitan area of Manila: http://www.dotc.gov.ph/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&layout=item&id=704&Itemid=167

Apart from this train times are published on the website of the Philippine National Railway: http://www.pnr.gov.ph/schedules.htm The data is published in JPG and HTML.

There is no consolidated data on time tables of regional and interregional bus lines.

Reviewer comments

Though there are efforts to improve public transport in the Philippines, it is still a slow struggle. From what I know you can request for data from the Department of Transportation and Communications but it is not open by default and the process is still bureacratic.
