New York City's system of buses and trains--the Metro Transit Authority--provides its data for download and inclusion in developer applications. All routes and schedules are available by borough in Google's GTFS format. Additionally, service status (ie, delays) and elevator/escalator status messages are updated every five minutes and available via XML feed. Finally, turnstile traffic is available at per-unit levels in four hour increments, with data refreshed weekly.
The MTA continues to make data available, including bridge/tunnel traffic and GIS files of subway entrance and exit points. Coverage includes all of the MTA's services, including the bus, subway, Long Island Rail Road, Metro North Bus, Long Island Bus and Bus Company.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
