|NeTEx is a CEN/ Technical Standard for exchanging Public Transport schedules, fares and related data.
The official NeTEx site is at http://netex-cen.eu/
This is a UK development site to assist the use of NeTEx formats for UK data.
NeTEx is intended to provide a European wide standard for exchanging Public Transport data for Passenger Information;
NeTEx is a general purpose format capable of exchanging timetables and fares 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) data
NeTEx is based on the CEN Transmodel standard which specifies a Conceptual model for
Public Transport data.
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 operational applications.
- The NeTEx schema is free to use and its development is managed by the CEN standards process.
