Stops- and Timetable data
Part of our mission statement is to share our data with anyone who wants it, for free. This page lists all our timetables, and stop place data dumps which are updated daily. All data dumps have permanent URL's and come as NeTEx or GTFS datasets. NeTEx is the official format for public transport data in Norway and is the most complete in terms of available data. GTFS is a downstream format with only a limited subset of the total data, but we generate datasets for it anyway since GTFS can be easier to use and has a wider distribution among international public transport solutions. GTFS sets come in "extended" and "basic" versions.

The stops referred to are defined in the national stop registry. It's possible to view the content without an account. You can also use the geocoder or NeTEx dump to extract what you may be looking for.
The stop identifiers are unique across all the datasets. Regardless of the data source.
The richness of the data depends on the source data from the respective county or operator. All parties are required to submit their data in the NeTEx format, in accordance with the Norwegian NeTEX profile, but unfortunately, we're not there yet.
NeTEx and Norwegian profile.
NeTEx (Network and Timetable Exchange) is an XML-based format for sharing public transport data. It is a CEN-standard and is slated to become an EU standard for national datasets.

Time table data (continuously updated)
* GTFS basic does not use extended route types. ** Despite a number of counties being merged in 2020 the affected datasets continue to be delivered separately.
- Whenever new data is uploaded by a data owner an update of the relevant dataset and the national dataset is triggered.
- Excessive downloading of files may lead to your IP being blocked. We expect that most users will have no need for more than one download per 24 hours.
- Additionally, all datasets are automatically re-validated and re-exported every night where expired data is trimmed away, retaining data for a maximum of 48 hours back in time. The original creation date, and subsequently the date of the most recent change can be found by checking the
CompositeFrame. For example:

Status of NeTEx completeness from providers
All Norwegian PTA's are sending native NeTEx from their planning system. The railway companies and some commercial PTO's are doing the same, while some are still developing this capability. The minor PTO's with only one or two lines are using AddTransit (GTFS) or the Entur-built tool Nplan (NeTEx).
