Use tidytransit to map transit stops and routes, calculate travel times and transit frequencies, and validate transit feeds. Tidytransit reads the General Transit Feed Specification into tidyverse and simple features data frames. Tidytransit can be used to: - read GTFS feeds into R - calculate travel times between transit stops - convert stops and routes to sf data frames - validate transit feeds and more

Have a look at the following vignettes to see how tidytransit can be used to analyse a feed:


This package requires a working installation of sf.

Install tidytransit from CRAN:


For the development version from Github:
