Developer’s Guide

Traficom (www.traficom.fi) provides access to the route and timetable data of the major public transport authorities (PTA).

Development and testing as well as commercial use of interfaces is free of charge.

There are three possible ways to access timetable and route data:

·         Kalkati.net formatted XML national database dump file, which includes stop, route and timetable information in a single file.

·         GTFS national database dump api.matka.fi/data/gtfs.zip (Alternative download link: http://185.134.88.185/gtfs.zip)

·         Routing etc APIs at Digitransit

The documentation is available only in English and Traficom takes no responsibility for possible errors or damages caused by documentation or data.

If you need more information or assistance related to the dump-files, please use the contact form. Traficom has right to abolish access rights whenever necessary, for example in case of excessive traffic to the interface or misuse of the service.

Access to the interfaces is requested on the account request form.

The content of the route and timetable database covers timetables and routes for buses, trains, local public transport and air traffic.

The license is CC 4.0 BY.

New content will be added without further notice.

Traficom does not guarantee continued supply of the information.

The stop times on routes are based on estimated travel times. The actual completion of the suggested connections cannot be guaranteed. Traficom is not liable for damages which may be caused by errors in the data or the failure of a suggested public transport connection.

Also lack of data in the database (minor cities and municipalities) or errors may affect the quality of the route suggestions
