GTFS to HTML
See gtfstohtml.com for full documentation.
gtfs-to-html creates human-readable, user-friendly transit timetables in HTML and PDF format directly from GTFS transit data. Most transit agencies have schedule data in GTFS format but need to show each route's schedule to users on a website. This project automates the process of creating nicely formatted HTML timetables for inclusion on a transit agency website. This makes it easy to keep timetables up to date and accurate when schedule changes happen and reduces the likelihood of errors.
Configurable and customizable
gtfs-to-html has many options that configure how timetables are presented. It also allows using a completely custom template which makes it easy to build chunks of HTML that will fit perfectly into any website using any HTML structure and classes that you'd like. Or, create printable PDF versions of timetables using the
outputFormat config option.
Accessibility for all
gtfs-to-html properly formats timetables to ensure they are screen-reader accessible and WCAG 2.0 compliant.
Mobile responsiveness built in
Built-in styling makes
gtfs-to-html timetables ready to size and scroll easily on mobile phones and tablets.
Schedule changes? A cinch.
By generating future timetables and including dates in table metadata, your timetables can appear in advance of a schedule change, and you can validate that your new timetables and GTFS are correct.
gtfs-to-html can also generate a map for each route that can be included with the schedule page. The map shows all stops for the route and lists all routes that serve each stop. See the
showMap configuration option below. If you'd rather just get all stops and route info as geoJSON, check out the gtfs-to-geojson package.
gtfs-to-html uses the
node-gtfs library to handle importing and querying GTFS data.

Installation, Configuration and Usage documentation
Changes in 1.0.0
GTFS-to-HTML 1.0.0 has some breaking changes.
- MongoDB is no longer used, instead SQLite is used.
sqlitePathinstead of a
route_text_colorin exported geoJSON now have a
#prepended to the hex color. So
dataExpireAfterSecondsconfig option has been removed.
- The default view
views/timetablehas some small improvements.
