The appearance of a new standard data format (Google Transit Feed Specification) used by public transport operators to share with app developers and information platforms the data related to transport services (schedules, lines, routes…) has represented a large improvement in terms of sharing and using this information.

In Barcelona Regional, by means of this GTFS data available in the different transport agencies and operators in the metropolitan area of Barcelona a model of accessibility with public transport in the area (travel time) has been done with ArcGis. This model generates accessibility indicators with the actual supply of public transport as well as adding future services to existing data in order to assess the impact of new transportation projects.
