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
National Railroad Passenger Corporation, doing business as Amtrak, is a publicly funded railroad service operated and managed as a for-profit corporation. Amtrak provides the most meaningful national-scale transportation timetables, as the United States has no national bus service that is publicly funded. For information on local transportation data, see: http://www.citygoround.org/agencies/us/?public=all
Additional transportation data is available from the US Department of Transportation at http://catalog.data.gov/dataset?organization=dot-gov and more at the Data.gov Safety community at http://safety.data.gov. This includes transportation venues, locations, safety records, on-time arrivals, etc. http://data.gov However this question is about national bus and train timetables which are harder to find. There is also a question as to whether in the US national bus and train are in fact government or privately run.
