The MTA wants you to build great tools for our riders.
Now you can use our schedule data for your website, feed reader, or application. We provide our transit information in the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format.
Does it cost to use our data?
Our data feeds are FREE for use.
Beginning in a few weeks, all MTA data feeds will become accessible only through issuance of an API key. App developers must agree to the terms and conditions of this access and complete and submit an Online Registration Form. Once that form is reviewed and accepted, the developer will be issued a Developer's API key. The key will enable the developer to access the MTA's data feeds. Click here to review the full terms and conditions of MTA data usage. In order to access data downloads, you must agree to these terms and conditions.
Want to use our logos, maps, or symbols?
Use of our intellectual property requires a license. We've put together a simple, easy-to-understand developer package for licensing our identity for use in your project. Click here to request a license.
Why aren't our logos and symbols free for use?
The MTA protects its brand identity and intellectual property on behalf of the public. Revenues generated from licensing go back into our budget, helping provide services for our customers. If an MTA-approved mobile application is provided to the public free of charge, the MTA requires a license but will not charge a license fee for the use of our intellectual property.
