What a Brilliant tool! Great for research purposes.71 votes
In order to add your city, the local transport provider needs to publish its public transport data in the GTFS format.
Please write your public transport agency and ask them to provide developers with GTFS data for free and under fair conditions. Point out the benefits they have when developers build cool applications like Mapnificent based on this data.
Please report progress and post any relevant links here. Thanks.
If the city of Zürich provides data, I am happy to add it.
Magic Bus’ live map is actually pretty cool!
But it doesn’t help me. I need data in the GTFS (General Transit Feed Specification) format and it doesn’t look like they are providing it. But if you ask them, maybe they will!
The link you posted is just a trip planning service, I need more data – specifically Google Transit Feed Specification data. This GTFS data is available in Dubai, but apparently only to Google Transit and not to the public.
Please write the transit authority in Dubai: https://www.rta.ae/wpsv5/wps/portal/CSCContact?SwitchToLatestLocale=true
and ask them to make the data available to the public for free. Emphasize the benefit that this will have for their customers as developers will create awesome apps like Mapnificent with the data.
Data for Berlin has been scraped more than a year ago and is not maintained.
Berlin currently does not publish public transport data, that is why it’s out-of-date, incomplete and possibly incorrect. Please request machine-readable and freely available data from the public transport providers BVG / S-Bahn / VBB.

At the moment the Reno data feed is broken (stop IDs are referenced in stop_times.txt that are not defined in stops.txt).
I will add Reno as soon as I get notified that this is fixed.
Please add Abu Dhabi, UAE3 votes
Abu Dhabi currently does not participate in the Google Transit program and therefore it most likely does not have GTFS data available.
Without data, no Mapnificent. Please contact the Abu Dhabi Transit Authority and ask them to publish their transit data as GTFS:

Would this belong to San Diego or should this be a separate map? I’m unfamiliar with most public transport networks, so I need to rely on people with local knowledge.
The transport agencies of Lisbon give their data to Google, but not to the public. Please write to them and ask them to publish GTFS data, so developers can create cool apps like Mapnificent.
This is a great idea, but I noticed my local 10min journey does not show39 votes
I’d love to integrate London local trains, if you can point me to data (preferrably GTFS data) for them.
If possible, it would be nice to see how some of these time are achieved. I live in DC and some of these look pretty optimistic. If you've found better ways to get around, I want to be able to go from pretty pictures to more efficient commuting!141 votes
This is a good idea! Technically it requires a bit more effort. Be aware that Mapnificent is not a trip planner and is partly guesstimating. But if it appears overly optimistic in some parts, an analysis is definitely important. Will do, but need to figure out right UI and implementation, may take some time.
I am happy to add cities which have GTFS data freely available. Saint John is not even on Google Transit.
If you care about this, please take two minutes of your time and write a short email to the transit authority and ask them to open up their data: http://saintjohntransit.com/index.cfm?event=page.view&filename=contact.cfm
Please give a link to the transit agencies website and to their GTFS data, otherwise I cannot act on this idea.
I am happy to include the data as soon as it’s made available by the different transport agencies. I am currently following up on AC Transit’s plans to publish GTFS data.
Can you add support for Indianapolis, IN USA11 votes
IndyGo does not participate in Google Transit and does not publish their transit data as GTFS, so I cannot build a Mapnificent for Indianapolis at this point. Please contact IndyGo and ask them to publish their transit data as GTFS: https://www.indygo.net/feedback.asp
Emphasize the benefit for their customers when developers are able to build cool applications on top of their data.
Seoul apparently publishes data in the GTFS format, as all of South Korea shows up at the "http://www.google.com/transit" link you provided. There are many, many Westerners living in Seoul. I believe that the added features provided by your service would be appreciated.7 votes
Apparently Seoul only gives the data to Google and not to the public, at least I couldn’t find any (it’s difficult without speaking Korean).
If you manage to find publicly available GTFS data, please post a link. If not, please write to the responsible public transport authority and ask them to publish their data!
Please link to the Transit agencies website and their data. There is currently no dataset for Cincinnati on gtfs-data-exchange.com. If no data is available, please ask the transit agency for GTFS data.
If Berlin is not providing Data, y don't u use the VRR (Ruhrarea & Duesseldorf) as 1st german cities

Please point me to their freely available data, if they provide any.
Please list all the different transit agencies that would need to be added. Please list available GTFS data for these agencies, if data is available. If data is not available, please write to the transit agency and ask them to publish GTFS data for developers to use free of charge.
As soon as data is available from the transport agency, Cologne will be added.
Please get in contact with your locale transport agency and request GTFS data!
