Is there a way to find specific real time data of RET using GTFS transit real time and protobuf. I've already used the feedmessage and feedEntity to get the vehicle's data but I can't filter it to find specific vehicles of Rotterdam. For now I'm just making a request to the vehiclePostitions.pb from http://gtfs.ovapi.nl/nl/ and get all the entities from that file. What are the clues to find specific information and the name of the vehicles and stations etc.

The data I need is:
Vehicles of Rotterdam
Stations names if it's possible
Stop times

Thank you!

From GTFS-RT perspective there is no way to filter the data.

From KV6 you could get a smaller datastream /RIG/KV6posinfo

Hey Stefan,

Thanks for your reply.

How can I excess that data? Is it from this website: https://data.ndovloket.nl/REALTIME.TXT? And is that through socket programming?

I'm a beginner with all this stuff, my apologies for not asking correct questions 😅.

Kind regards.

If you would find your way through ndovloket.nl than you would have
received the following page;

<https://htmwiki.nl/#!hackathon/realtime.md>

This is contains Python2 and Java examples. Don't hestitate to ask
questions :)

...but we don't mind that you download the full dataset (once per
minute) and filter it locally. KV6 is really 'realtime' for RET once per
15s for Bus/Tram, once per station for the Metro.

Hey Stefan, 
My apologies for replying late.

Thanks a lot for guiding me through it. I'll look through the links you've sent to me. I'll contact you later if I came across other problems or if I have more questions.
Highly appreciated!

Don't hesitate to share with the group what you are building.

"GameDev" probably has some people interested already.
