Developer Resources

Welcome developers, we have published our official train schedules in the Google Transit™ Feed Specification (GTFS) format.

Please read our License Agreement and then you’re free to use our GTFS feed to develop whatever you may come up with. Our only requests are that you stay up-to-date with our schedules and do not use our logo. Also let us know you’re out there by sending an email to developer@scrra.net. Additional Frequently Asked Questions are below:


Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you making your schedule data open to the public?

We are hoping someone can take our schedule data and develop something beneficial for our public transit customers, and encourage more people to try public transit in Southern California.


What is the Google Transit Feed Specification (GTFS)?

The GTFS is the open data format defined by Google™ to maintain transit schedules. The format can be used by anyone, and allows transit agencies a standard way to publish schedule, fare, and station information. You can find more about the GTFS format at the Google code page.


What kinds of things can be created with this data?

We are hoping you can help us answer this question. Possible ideas include trip planners, station finders, trip cost estimators, visualizations, and any other ideas you can think of and develop.


What about real-time arrival data?

That’s not available yet, we’ll let you know when it becomes available.


Will you help developers troubleshoot?

We don’t have the resources to do this. If you have questions regarding the GTFS, Google™ has a Google Transit Trip Planner Group that you can join, where other developers may have posted similar questions.


What about getting train schedule updates?

Be sure you are always using our current schedule data. We always post the latest GTFS schedule feed here on our website. Check our website frequently and note when schedules are updated.


What apps are currently available for Metrolink riders?

See our Rider Apps page.


What if I have additional questions?

You can send an email to developer@scrra.net.
