The General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) is the industry standard data format for transit schedule data. Community Transit provides schedule data in this format for all Community Transit bus service, as well as Sound Transit routes operated by Community Transit.
If you are using Community Transit’s GTFS data, please be sure to keep your data up to date. Major changes to Community Transit schedules typically occur twice a year (March and October), but off-cycle changes are common as well. Major schedule changes will be noted in advance on the “Community Transit Developers” Google Group.
Official documentation for the GTFS Specification may be found here. (https://developers.google.com/transit/gtfs/) To supplement the official GTFS specification, we provide additional documentation specific to Community Transit’s GTFS data. It can be found here.
GTFS-RT is the industry standard data format for providing arrival prediction data, live vehicle locations, and service alerts. An extension of GTFS, GTFS-RT must be used in conjunction with an agency’s GTFS data.
Community Transit publishes three GTFS-RT feeds:

Community Transit provides Geographic Information System (GIS) data of stops and routes for all Community Transit bus service, as well as Sound Transit routes operated by Community Transit. This data includes stop locations, route sequences and trip statistics by day type (weekday, Saturday and Sunday). Files are provided as shapefiles and maps created in ESRI ArcGIS. Data is provided as a package of files for each major service change which typically occurs twice a year (March and October).
We encourage users of these data resources to stay connected and follow the Community Transit Developers Google Group where we will post updates about available data and answer any questions or respond to issues you might have regarding our data. Or you can send a message to the Open Data team and they’ll respond to your message promptly, usually by the next business day.
Community Transit has changed how we collect our spatial information. As a result, we have stopped publishing our GIS data. If you're searching for specific data, you might find it in our GTFS data, available to download using the URLs provided on this page.
