Matka.fi API Developer’s Guide

 

The Finnish Transport Agency (FTA) provides access to Matka.fi (Journey.fi) data and API when the application or service supports public transport use and public transport information provision. 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:

Please, note: The old HTTP GET interface, will be closed by end of February 2017.

The documentation is available only in English and FTA 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. FTA 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 matka.fi database covers timetables and routes for buses, trains, local public transport and air traffic.

The Matka.fi data is published in accordance with FTA´s Open data License (also in Finnish and Swedish).

New content will be added without further notice.

FTA does not guarantee continued supply of the information.

The route suggestions are based on estimated travel times. The actual completion of the suggested connections cannot be guaranteed. Finnish Transport Agency 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.
