Timetables Display allows for the customization of the timetables.txt and timetable_stop_order.txt files generated with Trillium GTFS. These two files are used in combination with the open source GTFS-to-HTML software.
Note: This is only for use with GTFS-to-HTML. This does not affect Schedules or Trips. To learn more about GTFS-to-HTML, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Timetables Display Dashboard
Access the Timetables Display dashboard via the hamburger menu to the left of the feed name at the top of the screen:
The Timetables Display Dashboard is your homepage for your Timetables list. On it, you can find a list of all your Timetables, along with the ability to sort them by ID, Name, Direction, or Service Days. You can also Filter your list.
How Many Timetables to Include?
Each Direction will require its own Timetable, but the Routes and Service Days can be combined if desired. GTFS-to-HTML will generate a complete Timetable for each records, so if there are 25 Timetable records, GTFS-to-HTML will generate 25 files.
Additionally, if a Schedule Change will result in a new Timetable, there will need to be two records for the same set of Directions, Routes and Service Days, with two separate Start and End Dates
How to Utilize Timetables.txt and Timetable_Stop_Order.txt
GTFS-to-HTML is an open source software that requires some familiarity with various programs that require installation on a local computer. It is not plug and play, nor is it available through a browser. Its author, brendannee, is very responsive, but will not run the program for you.
