Need to summarize, aggregate, or disaggregate transit data at the route, stop, or geographic level? This webinar training will show you how to use General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) data to conduct region-wide analyses for summarizing levels of service by day, time period, route, stop or geographic area. Seasoned transit professionals from Foursquare Integrated Transportation Planning will guide participants through the process of using GTFS data for basic geographic transit analysis. Participants will learn how to extract stop, route, schedule data from GTFS feeds in Microsoft Excel and/or Microsoft Access; create relationships between feed components to summarize information at different levels; and display the information spatially in GIS software. Webinar presenters will also provide a brief primer on GTFS data for new users and answer questions such as: What is GTFS? What is included in a GTFS feed? How do all of the feed components relate to one another and to the source agency’s schedule data?
