Hi all -

Per section 4 of the GTFS Realtime specification amendment process, I'm calling for a vote to adopt GTFS-NewShapes as experimental within GTFS-realtime, to support the real-time transmission of shape information, such as for presenting detours within a passenger application. You can vote with a +1 (in favor) or -1 (against) at https://github.com/google/transit/pull/272.

Additionally, I'd like to call a revote for adopting pickup and drop-off types as experimental fields in GTFS-realtimeYou can vote with a +1 (in favor) or -1 (against) at https://github.com/google/transit/pull/265.

As per section 6, the voting period for these two pull requests will be at least 1 week and therefore will close on Wednesday, Aug 24th at 23:59:59 UTC.

Thanks!
Eric

Hi GTFS-realtime community!

As per section 3 of the GTFS-realtime specification amendment process, I'm re-announcing PR #265 on the google/transit repo, which based on feedback from the community has new non-editorial changes to deprecate SKIPPED in favor of
 using MODIFIED and pickup and drop-off types instead.

The rationale here is to support a more detailed relationship of a vehicle to a scheduled stop beyond skipping it completely, such as a vehicle that may stop but won't pick up any new passengers ("drop-off only"), a technique used by agencies to regain time when running late or address a gap in service. This also will bring GTFS-realtime into consistency with GTFS-static's stop_times.txt.

Users will continue to be able to represent the SKIPPED scenario by specifying drop_off_type=NO_DROP_OFF and pickup_type=NO_PICKUP using StopTimeProperties. 

Please take a look and leave your comments/feedback on the PR!

Thanks,
Eric

Тролейбусен Транспорт Плевен - ЕООД

Hello people,

I am 18 years old and I am a big fan of the transport. Due to this fact I decided I could be helpful for the transport in my city - I contacted with the manager of our city transport company and he authorized me to provide timetables on the Static Feed on Google Maps last year. The feed has been working for about 1 year. By the way, you can check the transport system in my city - find Pleven, Bulgaria on Google Maps. So, since the feed is working I am wondering how I can provide the Live Feed on Transit section. I read a lot but I have no acquaintances in programming and I even don't know how to start. The thing I want to do is to provide the Feed with information about the accurate position of the vehicles and the delays or earlier arrivals. If somebody from this group can help me, I will be really thankful. I need info about the program I can work with and if possible one exact example which would be like a base for the other stuff. I will probably ask a lot of questions.

If somebody is interested in helping me, please contact with me on the following emails:

Best regards,
Kaloyan Todorov
