About the September Daily Service Level Charts

  • These charts show the total hours of transit service described by the active feed for each day.
  • Since service levels often vary by the day of the week, it is split into three charts for weekdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
  • Flat lines indicate consistent levels of service throughout the month.
  • Short drops may indicate temporary reduced service, such as for holidays, gaps in feed publishing, or potential inaccuracies.
  • Please reach out to our help desk at [email protected] with any questions.

About the September Identifier Change Charts

  • These charts show the percentage of stop and route IDs that have changed since the previous month.
  • Stop and route IDs are important identifiers for GTFS feed consumers to correctly parse feeds.
  • It is a GTFS Best Practice to keep these consistent between feed versions whenever possible.
  • More than 5% being new or dropped is a cause for attention, especially if there hasn't been a major service or route change.
  • Please reach out to our help desk at [email protected] with any questions.

Error Name Error Description Severity
decreasing_or_equal_shape_distance Two consecutive points in shapes.txt should have increasing values for shape_dist_traveled. If the values are equal, this is considered as an error. ERROR
feed_expiration_date At any time, the published GTFS dataset should be valid for at least the next 7 days, and ideally for as long as the operator is confident that the schedule will continue to be operated. If possible, the GTFS dataset should cover at least the next 30 days of service. WARNING
stop_too_far_from_trip_shape Per GTFS Best Practices, route alignments (in shapes.txt) should be within 100 meters of stop locations which a trip serves. WARNING
