Add GTFS to a Network Dataset

Use Add GTFS to a Network Dataset to incorporate transit data into a network dataset so you can perform schedule-aware analyses using the Network Analyst tools in ArcMap.

After creating your network dataset, you can use the ArcGIS Network Analyst tools, like Service Area and OD Cost Matrix, to perform transit/pedestrian accessibility analyses, make decisions about where to locate new facilities, find populations underserved by transit or particular types of facilities, or visualize the areas reachable from your business at different times of day. You can also publish services in ArcGIS Server that use your network dataset.

The Add GTFS to a Network Dataset tool suite consists of a toolbox to pre-process the GTFS data to prepare it for use in the network dataset, a custom GTFS transit evaluator you must install that helps the network dataset read the GTFS schedules, a toolbox of supplementary analysis tools for use once you have created the network dataset, and a user's guide to help you set up your network dataset and run analyses.
