Dear all,
What is the status of OBA regarding the latest standard for GTFS-flex?

Sheldon from Cambridge Systematics should be able to answer this more accurately than me on the latest status, but I believe the onebusaway-gtfs-modules supports at least some of the GTFS-flex v2 fields:

...but the OneBusAway server software hasn't been updated to handle these fields yet:

The native OBA apps (iOS and Android) don't include any specific flex functionality.

OneBusAway was designed around fixed route timetables, and the v2 UIs
optimized around trip-based schedules (as opposed to GTFS
Frequency-based schedules).

There has been interest in Flex features, but honestly it would
require some user experience design around how to present such
information alongside the current information.

I'd love to be a part of this effort if there is a sponsoring agency!
