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

There is no national central public transport data catalog. Taiwan Railway, Taiwan High Speed Rail and etc., all timetables are in different websites. No changes in 2014.

People can download different timetables they need in http://data.gov.tw.

  1. Domestic Airline timetable in CSV format: http://data.gov.tw/node/6066
  2. Bus timetable in CSV format: http://data.gov.tw/node/6052
  3. Railway in XML format: http://data.gov.tw/node/6138
  4. High Speed Railway in CSV format: http://data.gov.tw/node/7080

They are all provided by Ministry of Transportation and Communication but from different department.

And the open data platform is built by Taiwan gov. so, I think those data sets are eligible.
