Title: Transit Stops
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data
Description:
Abstract:
This dataset provides information on fixed-route transit stops for the State of Washington as of 7/1/17. Stop data was primarily extracted from General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) data. In the case of Grant Transit Authority, GTFS data was not available as of the time of publishing so stops were identified manually based on information from the Grant Transit website and Google Maps. Because GTFS data is typically created and managed by each individual transit agency, WSDOT cannot guarantee the accuracy of this data.
Purpose: Fixed-route transit stops for the State of Washington.

Lineage:
Source_Information:
Type_of_Source_Media: None
Source_Contribution:
Publicly-available GTFS feeds were acquired from TransitLand (https://transit.land/), TransitFeeds (<http://transitfeeds.com/>), and agency websites. All other GTFS feeds were acquired directly from transit agencies.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
An automated Python script was developed that:
1) Downloads the most recent GTFS zip files available 2) Extracts data tables and loads into a MySQL database 3) Queries stop data and joins with route information, agency name, and last update fields 4) Concatenates stop information for duplicate stop locations 5) Exports stop data to ArcGIS shapefile

Entity_and_Attribute_Information:
Detailed_Description:
Entity_Type:
Entity_Type_Label: TransitStops
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: OBJECTID
Attribute_Definition: Internal feature number.
Attribute_Definition_Source: Esri
Attribute_Domain_Values:
Unrepresentable_Domain:
Sequential unique whole numbers that are automatically generated.
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: Shape
Attribute_Definition: Feature geometry.
Attribute_Definition_Source: Esri
Attribute_Domain_Values:
Unrepresentable_Domain: Coordinates defining the features.
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: Agency
Attribute_Definition: Name of the transit agency serving the stop
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: StopID
Attribute_Definition:
"stop_id" from the stops.txt file in each agency's GTFS feed. Stop IDs are unique to each agency, but not unique across the entire dataset.
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: StopName
Attribute_Definition: "stop_name" from the stops.txt file in each agency's GTFS feed.
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: Routes
Attribute_Definition:
The routes serving each stop, separated by semicolons. "route_short_name" from routes.txt in each agency's GTFS feed. In instances where no "route_short_name" existed, "route_long_name" was used.
Attribute:
Attribute_Label: LastUpdated
Attribute_Definition:
Most recent modified date for any .txt file within each agency's GTFS feed. Since stop location data does not necessarily change frequently, it is assumed that stop information is up-to-date as of the most recent update to the GTFS feed itself.
