Journey Planner v3 BETA

This API is the core service for journey planning and uses OpenTripPlanner software to provide departure boards for individual stops, and point-to-point journey planning for all public transport in Norway, including real-time information, regardless of transport mode, or operator. All data is presented as a Transmodel-based GraphQL-API.

Journey planner API v3 is a new service running on OpenTripPlanner 2.0. This service is currently labelled BETA but can be used for testing purposes. Removal of BETA status is estimated for April 2021. The v3 service will not be backward compatible with v2.

We also provide a JavaScript SDK which supports a lot of JourneyPlanner's queries.

Example queries


This API is open under NLOD licence, however, it is required that all consumers identify themselves by using the header ET-Client-Name. Entur will deploy strict rate-limiting policies on API-consumers who do not identify with a header and reserves the right to block unidentified consumers. The structure of ET-Client-Name should be: "company-application"

Header examples:

  • "brakar-journeyplanner"
  • "fosen_utvikling-departureboard"
  • "nor_way_bussekspress-nwy-app"


There is only one endpoint!
