Welcome to GTFS-realtime Validator

What is the GTFS-Realtime Validator?


This tool takes GTFS and GTFS-realtime feeds as inputs, and examines the GTFS-realtime feed to determine if it properly meets GTFS-realtime best practices, both those explicitly listed in the spec and those based on the needs of consuming applications.

The rules that this tool uses to validate feeds are listed here
