Our most commonly requested bulk export from the Transitland platform is a dataset of all transit stops across the United States. This export includes information about the stop/station location itself, as well as the routes that serve that stop. Routes include bus (), train (), subway/metro (), ferry (), and cable car (). Also included in the export is information about the transit agency that operates each route that serves the given stop/station location.

feed_version_sha1- identifies the feed version from which the stop was sourced
feed_version_fetched_at- datetime for when the feed version was fetched from the transit operator
Columns about the stop:
stop_onestop_id- Transitland’s ID for the stop location. If multiple agencies provide separate records for the same stop location, they will be merged together into a single Onestop ID, assuming lat/lon and name are very similar. For more information open
https://www.transit.land/stops/<replace with stop_onestop_id>
stop_id- transit operator’s ID for the stop
stop_name- name for the stop, provided by transit operator
stop_desc- optional description for the stop, provided by the transit operator
