Real Time Data

MTS is a member agency of the open source OneBusAway project.  We provide our scheduling information in the GTFS format (documentation), and we distribute our real time data using the OneBusAway API (documentation). The OneBusAway API also includes a GTFS Realtime feed (documentation) for use in existing or new applications.
