Description

This dataset describes the public transport networks of 25 cities across the world in multiple easy-to-use data formats. These data formats include network edge lists, temporal network event lists, SQLite databases, GeoJSON files, and General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) compatible ZIP-files.

The source data for creating these networks has been published by public transport agencies according to the GTFS data format. To produce the network data extracts for each city, the original data have been curated for errors, filtered spatially and temporally and augmented with walking distances between public transport stops using data from OpenStreetMap.

Cities included in this dataset version: Adelaide, Belfast, Berlin, Bordeaux, Brisbane, Canberra, Detroit, Dublin, Grenoble, Helsinki, Kuopio, Lisbon, Luxembourg, Melbourne, Nantes, Palermo, Paris, Prague, Rennes, Rome, Sydney, Toulouse, Turku, Venice, and Winnipeg.

Contrary to the version 1.0 of this data set, this version (1.2) does not include the cities of Antofagasta and Athens, for which non-commercial usage of the data is not allowed.

Contrary to previous versions of the data set (1.0 and 1.2), in this version (1.2) the temporal filtering of the data has been slightly adapted, so that the daily and weekly data extracts cover all trips departing between from 03 AM on Monday to 03 AM on Tuesday (daily extract) or 03 AM of the Monday next week (weekly extract). Additionally, a temporal network extract covering a full week of operations has been added for each city.
