Webinar: Demystifying Trip Planner Licensing Agreements


National RTAP has offered trip planning support through our General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) Builder tool for many years and has often had an agency's legal review slow down or halt the process of publishing the data to trip planner sites like Google, Bing, Apple, and others.

This webinar will offer a deep dive into the trip plan data licensing agreement process to understand what, if any, are the risks. Presenters include a lawyer and GTFS subject matter expert who will translate at least one sample agreement from legalese into English and answer questions you may have. We will also hear from a transit agency who recently published their GTFS data and will share their experience with the trip planner agreements.

The webinar should provide answers to your legal team's questions and help you make your route and schedule information visible to potential riders through online trip planners.
