The goal of NeTEX is to provide a efficient European wide standard for
exchanging Public Transport schedules and related data.
NeTEX is intended to be a general purpose format
capable of exchanging timetables for Rail, Bus, Coach, Ferry, Air or any other
mode of public transport. It includes full support for rail
services and can be used to exchange
UIC (International Union Of Railways)
NeTEx is based on the CEN Transmodel
standard which specifies a Conceptual model for Public Transport data,
extended with additional concepts for stops and stations from the
CEN Technical standard IFOPT (Identification of Fixed Objects in Public Transport).
NeTEX uses a fully articulated model that represents PT concepts as
well characterised, layered abstractions; the format is designed for
the efficient, updateable exchange of complex transport data between
distributed systems. This allows the data to be used in modern web services
architectures and to support a wide range of passenger information and
The NeTEX schema is free to use and its
development is managed by the CEN standards process.
