Where can I find commuter-related datasets for underground transportation (subway, metro)?

The NY MTA is a good example, and there is also the Transport for London data feeds. I would like to have from other cities around the world.

I'm looking for the following:

  • Commuter entrance & exit stations
  • Times & durations of travel
  • Passenger routes
  • I take it you're not talking about the fast-food restaurant, Subway.

The authoritative source for Chicago transit data is http://www.transitchicago.com/data/.

Steven Vance did quite a bit of preparation and organization around Chicago transit data and posted it on his blog in 2010. I don't see any note that indicates the data has been updated since then, but it's still probably useful as an overview to what data there is and what you might need to do with it.


Find DC Metro datasets here: https://www.wmata.com/rider_tools/developer_resources.cfm

Hopefully, downloads will be faster than their trains.
