Integrating Public Transportation Data: Moving Towards an Extended GTFS Data Model

The current state of standardization for storing or exchanging data among public transportation authorities is at its infancy which leads to interoperability issues in projects that depend in the exchange of public transportation data. This paper discusses the development of a data model aiming at helping transportation authorities to store and, if needed, provide their data in a standardized way. Here, the GTFS reference, with some adjustments, was use as a guideline to such transportation data model. As a secondary result, an application has been developed on top of the proposed data model. This application allows users to feed the model with already developed GTFS information or, create and store new data.
