If you publish a gtfs.zip file, that is considered your planning
information.

Your realtime information consist of multiple files having a .pb extension.
For example alerts.pb, vehiclePositions.pb and tripUpdates.pb or similar.
The location towards the webserver those files are placed on is requested.

AVTA as in Antelope Valley? I did a quick check, Transit.land has the following record:
The static feed that Stefan mentions is posted at https://www.avta.com/userfiles/files/google_transit.zip
The GTSF real-time feed files with the .pb file extension would be expected at a similar location. They are dynamic, i.e. change every minute depending on how the fleet tracking system has been integrated. Speaking of - does AVTA have a fleet tracking (aka CAD/AVL) system? If that's the case, a data feed might be available to the public, albeit not necessarily in GTFS-RT format.

Thank you so much for this information. I have been able to share the static feed as i edit it to add our fare information. the CAD/AVL company helped me with the realtime feed and i have a secondary agency asking me for the link to it and i'm not sure how to reply to it. But this was really helpful.

Thank you.

The link of realtime feed is I guess is a htts(s) URL others can download the feed from. Thus, if you are going to provide the realtime data to someone you probably need a server which serves that changing realtime data via a stable http address, e.g. http://example.com/my_rt_feed . The data you serve should probably come up in binary protocol buffer format.
