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, there will be some changes made to the static GTFS feeds originally hosted on wmata.com. First, the static feeds will be split into two modes - rail and bus. Second, the combined feed will be retired on February 28, 2020. This helps keep the most accurate instances of the GTFS and GTFS-RT feeds available to developers.

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 assistance, please contact gtfs-support@wmata.com.
