GTFS Changes and GTFS-RT Debut

Metro has officially launched GTFS-RT! Developers now have access to the new Metrorail and Metrobus feeds through the Developer Portal.

With the implementation of GTFS-RT, some changes were made to the static GTFS feeds originally hosted on First, the static feeds were split into two modes - rail and bus. Second, the combined feed was retired as of April 15, 2020. This helps keep the most accurate instances of the GTFS and GTFS-RT feeds available to developers. Please log in to the developer portal here to download our new, separated Bus & Rail GTFS files.

Please make sure you take the time to test the new feeds and make any application adjustments to support these changes, as well as review the updated WMATA Transit Data Terms of Use.

For any questions regarding either the static or RT feeds, please contact

The collection of data offered here allows developers to create new and innovative applications for the web or mobile devices. We encourage you to integrate Metro data into your applications and mashups to help get people the information they want about getting around. Use of our APIs and other data is free of charge!

API Documentation

Check out the automatically generated API Documentation that describes how to use the APIs and includes code samples in multiple languages. The API Console allows you to directly interact with the API right here in the developer portal.
