MobilityData

We improve the traveler experience through standardized, high quality, comprehensive, discoverable, and up-to-date data.

Imagine you live in Montreal, you are about to go to work. Too many service interruptions on the Orange line lately and it seems like your bus is never on time, so you want to know if you need to leave earlier than usual. You take out your smartphone to check your favorite mobility app. What are my options to get to my destination? Mobility data standards are a fundamental part of the puzzle to give you the information in a travel planning application to get you from point A to point B.

The data behind that traveler information is the language in which the information is processed and transmitted. To provide reliable and intuitive travel directions, public agencies, cities, and private companies need shared languages and tools. MobilityData meets that need: we are a non-profit organization that improves and extends data formats, making them easier to use through training, documentation, open-source software, online services, and more. We believe high quality trip planning apps require standardized high quality data, and this is why MobilityData creates, facilitates and influences the collaboration space with international stakeholders to support and accelerate the development of two international data standards: the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) for public transit passenger information, and the General Bikeshare Feed Specification (GBFS).
