We are announcing the addition of real-time transit trip updates to the CalcRoute API. Real-time transit data is made available by a limited set of transit agencies who provide their data in real-time format. We have coverage provided by 100 agencies in metro areas across the world including New York, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, Toronto, Houston, and Baltimore. Currently, the 4 markets where coverage exists are the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands, the last of which has coverage nationwide. The addition of real-time trip updates means we now 1) recommend better routes that accounts for these updates and 2) expose these updates to developers in the API response’s childItineraryItems object:
