Data currency

 

Maintained on an ongoing basis with schedule updates, detours, and route changes. Real-time feed cached files are updated byy the system on the order of every 30 seconds.

Data accuracy

 

Stops are geolocated with handheld GPS units, and are accurate to within 3-5 metres. Routes were drawn by hand and may not snap precisely to a street network. Sometimes additional trips are added to the schedule to increase the passenger capacity of a line. These additional trips may not be included in the GTFS data until the next subsequent update.

The frequency of data transmission for the GTFS-realtime feed is not fixed and can change due to unforeseen circumstances. There is a naturally variable delay in the information being broadcast from the vehicle to the INIT AVL system to the feed requester.
