TfNSW launched the Mobility as a Service Innovation Challenge in June 2018. As a result, startups and companies incubated as part of the the Challenge have started rolling out a number of innovative trials since December 2018 for customers and transport operators. Trials and products will continue to roll out throughout 2019.
To enable and build the MaaS ecosystem in NSW, TfNSW has developed a Data Specification for the sharing of demand and supply of capacity.
The data specification suggests the publication and sharing of data using a number of formats including GTFS, GTFS-realtime, GBFS and vehicle information (realtime) data feeds via TFNSW Open Data Hub, as well as using historical data for analysis and planning.
We are currently welcoming feedback for the proposed data specification.
To download and review the Transport for NSW MaaS Data Sharing Specification please provide your email address for updates to be redirected to the download page.
We welcome feedback from academics, industry, operators and researchers. In order to keep you up to date about any changes, we require your email address.
