TransLink is committed to the Queensland Government's open data revolution which promotes innovation and transparency.

We share our timing and scheduling data with developers who create innovative tools for our customers. This is the same data we use in journey planner and MyTransLink app.

Data resources

You can use schedule data for your website, feed reader or mobile app. We provide a transit information in the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format.

The General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) defines a common format for public transport schedules and associated geographic information.

Documentation

Used in conjunction with the GTFS files, we provide real-time information for our network in GTFS real-time format. The feed covers bus, train, ferry and tram services in South East Queensland.

On 31 January 2017 TransLink will be shutting down the OPIA (Online Passenger Information Application) API, which currently provides access to journey planning and schedule information, in favour of our GTFS and GTFS-RT feeds.

Our GTFS feeds offer an number of advantages compared to OPIA API:

  • greater network coverage
  • a mechanism for integrating our-real time data
  • greater capabilities for network analysis
  • enables developers to build their own journey planning algorithims or utilise off the shelf solutions.

TransLink is no longer accepting new OPIA API developers. Existing customers should migrate to the GTFS/GTFS-RT feeds before the shut down.
