Monthly GTFS Quality Report
City of Arcata  ·  November 2022

This is a monthly report, generated by the California Integrated Travel Project (Cal-ITP), summarizing issues discovered by MobilityData’s GTFS Validator. This report is available for viewing by the general public to support continuous improvement of GTFS data and the experience of transit passengers.

Has RT Feed
This feed includes GTFS-Realtime (GTFS-RT). Realtime data contributes to a better rider experience by letting riders know exactly when their bus or train is coming, as well as detour and trip cancellation info. It also enables Cal-ITP to support transit agencies with analyses such as our California Transit Speed Maps, viewable by clicking the button above. Certain feeds may include RT data but not have a speed map available. To generate a speed map, we require GTFS-RT Vehicle Positions data that matches the rest of the GTFS feed. Additionally, we don't currently generate speed maps for rail service. Please contact us at [email protected] with any questions about GTFS-RT data or suggestions for analysis products.

About the November 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 November 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.

Validation errors observed
Error Name Error Description Severity
unknown_file A file is unknown. INFO
unknown_column A column is unknown. INFO
foreign_key_violation A foreign key references the primary key of another file. A foreign key violation means that the foreign key referenced from a given row (the child file) cannot be found in the corresponding file (the parent file). The Foreign keys are defined in the specification under "Type" for each file. ERROR
stop_without_stop_time A stop in stops.txt is not referenced by any stop_times.stop_id, so it is not used by any trip. WARNING
invalid_currency_amount A currency amount field has a value that does not match the format (e.g. expected number of decimal places) of its corresponding currency code field. The number of decimal places is specified by ISO 4217. ERROR
stop_without_zone_id If fare_rules.txt is provided, and fare_rules.txt uses at least one column among origin_id, destination_id, and contains_id, then all stops and platforms (location_type = 0) must have stops.zone_id assigned. ERROR
