Bus stop data regarding public transport terminals now included in Digiroad

Bus stop data regarding public transport terminals now included in Digiroad

Published 19.3.2018

From now on, information on bus stops in public transport terminals is found in Digiroad. Terminals are significant central hubs for public transport such as travel centers, terminals and bus stations which include platform type stops relevant to the passengers.

Because of this renewal, the Digiroad bus stop data in gtfs format will include complemented information from Wednesday 21 March onwards. In addition to the current information the following data will also be published:

  • Zone ID of the bus stop = zone_id
  • Platform number = platform_code (according to the extension in the stops.txt file)
  • The bus stop data will also include a new class terminal stop = 6
  • A bus stop added to a transport terminal can be linked to the terminal with the field parent_station. The field expresses the stop_id of the terminal bus stop if the bus stop is a part of a bigger transport terminal entity.

The data fields have already been added to the csv format bus stop data, found here. The attribute data regarding bus stop data published on the Digiroad web page is listed here.
