Datasets

We have a number of datasets available to the public as part of a commitment to creating open access to our data and information.

We encourage developers to use the datasets to produce digital products to assist users of public transport.

All PTV Datasets can be found on the DataVic website.

Victorian public transport data

GTFS

A GTFS format of PTV’s public transport data is now available on the DataVic website.

GTFS Data is also used by Google Maps. For more information, see Public transport has arrived on Google Maps.

PTV Timetable API

Version 3 of the PTV Timetable, documented in Swagger was released on 20 October 2016.

The PTV Timetable API provides dynamic access to the raw timetable data for all metropolitan and regional train, tram and bus services in Victoria (including real-time data for metropolitan train, tram and bus services and some areas of the regional bus network).

For more information see, A first for PTV as it publicly releases its real time Timetable API.
