Who does my transit system serve, and how well are these people served?  How easily can people access important destinations by transit?  This workshop will help you answer these questions using ArcGIS and your GTFS public transit data.  

We will cover:
  • How to display stops and routes in the map
  • How to determine the coverage of your transit system and enrich the coverage area with demographic information
  • How to calculate the frequency of transit service available to different areas of town and points of interest
  • How to create a GTFS-enabled network dataset for use with ArcGIS Network Analyst
  • How to use Network Analyst and your network dataset to calculate measures of transit accessibility
  • [Optional] How to generate a shapes.txt file for your GTFS dataset

By the end of the workshop, you will have created most of the components shown in this Story Map:
