Société de transport de Laval (STL) is, of course, the public transit operator for Laval. Proudly one of the first Canadian transit agency to have real time schedules and bus tracking, the STL has a multitude of tools available to its users for them to keep track of their favourite bus departures. From real time informational web sites, both regular and mobile, to smart phone applications (Iphone and Android), dynamic touch screens displays and email / SMS alerts, the STL constantly focuses on innovative ways to release its information.
Last December, the STL decided to join the open data movement by releasing its planned and real time schedule information to developers, respectively in GTF and XML feed format. In March, the STL also launched a developing contest following the release of its data, the same data that is available for the HACKDAYS HACKMTL. All the information on our feeds is available on this page: http://www.stl.laval.qc.ca/lang/en/open-source/files/.
We are hoping you can use our feeds with other APIs available and have the opportunity to offer Laval transit user tools to enhance their transit experience by telling them what is “near by” or other services of that nature.
See you on Saturday!
The STL team
