Performance analytics from your GTFS feeds

Route Analyst GTFS creates speed, delay and headway maps, charts and graphs instantly from GTFS and GTFS-RealTime feeds.

Route Analyst GTFS is cloud-based database and analytics software that empowers transit agencies with an innovative suite of remarkably-affordable and easy-to-use tools that deliver actionable insights and valuable conclusions derived from the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS and GTFS-RealTime) data feeds that you already generate.

Route Analyst GTFS does not require any extra work, equipment, servers or staff time from the transit agency. We pick up your GTFS and GTFS-RealTime data feeds and the DB4IoT database engine, algorithms and tools do the number crunching for you. Transit agency staff simply logs in to their online instance of Route Analyst GTFS to visualize and analyze performance over any historical time range, over a single route, multiple routes or the entire transit system.

Route Analyst GTFS empowers transit agencies to view each individual route over time and maps simultaneously to analyze how driving speeds, travel delays, passenger loads and headway change. This helps transit agencies identify performance bottlenecks and ways to improve them.
