City, State, Metro Area, and Country
The data also comes with a predefined symbology scheme that was developed by the most recent metro maps (as of January 1st, 2021).
(Note, the dashboards simplify the line symbology to a singular color.)
Data are provided in Shapefile, GeoJSON, and CSV formats, and can be opened using ArcGIS, QGIS, R, and other geospatial analysis applications (the CSV files can be opened using Excel or similar applications). Additional information, including rules related to data use, is provided in a read me/data dictionary file attached to the data.
The data is derived from a variety of sources. Not all sources agree on specific attributes. Information was prioritized from websites established for each individual transit system. Please contact us with corrections at firstname.lastname@example.org.
