The Oregon statewide GTFS creation and maintenance project is an effort to maintain transit schedule, geographic, calendar, and fare information in a standard data format called the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS). GTFS data is presented in the Google Maps transit trip planner and many other third party applications. The project is funded and managed by the Oregon Department of Transportation's Public Transit Division. The contractor selected to maintain data and support its integration into 3rd party applications like Google maps is Trillium Solutions, Inc.
