Request Parameters

  • lat - The latitude coordinate of the search center
  • lon - The longitude coordinate of the search center
  • latSpan/lonSpan - Set the limits of the search bounding box
  • includeTrips - Can be true/false to determine whether full <trip/> elements are included in the <references/> section. Defaults to false.
  • includeSchedules - Can be true/false to determine whether full <schedule/> elements are included in the <tripDetails/> section. Defaults to false.

Response

The response is a list of <tripDetails/> element that captures extended details about each active trip. Active trips are ones where the transit vehicle is currently located within the search radius. We use real-time arrival data to determine the position of transit vehicles when available, otherwise we determine the location of vehicles from the static schedule.
