Does anyone have city bus schedule integration into your portal?  We are getting a lot of requests for this and wondering what others have done to include bus schedules into their portal.

 

Thank you,

Casey

We have not integrated ours with the Portal yet as we are just getting going, but we are working with the school and the local community bus system to get their data for our mobile app. We will integrate with the portal. 

There is a standard called GTFS  (general trasit feed specification)  https://developers.google.com/transit/gtfs/reference
This is the standard most transit systems are using.  Our school shuttle system is not, but our Local bus system for the county was putting their info into this format.  

Our school shuttle has live bus data so we are able to connect into their API to get the data for a map.  
The county/city bus system does not have live trackers on the bus so we just have a schedule, stops, and other info via the GTFS.

For our portal we could simply link to the campus shuttle live data map.
