MetroLabs

There is so much great new technology out there for transit users! MetroLabs was created to let you test-drive the very latest tools so you can get the most out of your trips around town.

Our Developers Resources are provided to the public to encourage experimentation and innovation among independent programmers and developers. Got an idea for an application? Here's the data you need to make it happen.— 

GTFS Data— A set of comma delimited text files containing schedule data for all fixed route MetroBus lines,  and MetroRail. The files use the General Transit Feed Specification, which is documented at https://developers.google.com/transit/gtfs/reference.

KML Data— Keyhole Markup Language (Google Earth) files for each Capital Metro MetroBus route, as well as the routing for MetroRail.

Bus Routes Data— ESRI Shapefile (GIS) files for each Capital Metro MetroBus route.  All shapefiles are in Texas Central State Plane, NAD83 coordinate system.

Service Area Data— ESRI Shapefile (GIS) file of the Capital Metro fixed route service area.  The service area is comprised of member jurisdictions which contribute a portion of their tax revenue to Capital Metro.  The shapefile is in Texas Central State Plane, NAD83 coordinate system.

Transit Stop Data— ESRI Shapefile (GIS) file containing all current active bus stops, along with all MetroRail stations.  The shapefile is in Texas Central State Plane, NAD83 coordinate system.

Stop Amenities Data— A comma delimited text file listing amenities (shelters, benches, etc...) at bus stops and MetroRail stations.

MetroRail Red Line Data— ESRI Shapefile (GIS) file of the MetroRail Red Line from Leander to downtown Austin.  The shapefile is in Texas Central State Plane, NAD83 coordinate system.
