You will find on this page a collection of waypoints files related to
ground transportation (subway/metro/trains stations, bus stops, etc).
For now it only consists of files I have created myself for my own usage.
But I hope that other people will also share their own files and so that
the collection will grow. Contact me if you
have a file to submit, even if it contains only a few waypoints.
The files are in GPX format (http://www.topografix.com/gpx).
This is a quite universal XML-based format that is supported by more
and more GPS software. If you are, like me, a Garmin user, you can load
these files directly in MapSource or Basecamp. If your program doesn't support the
GPX format, have a look at GPS Babel (http://www.gpsbabel.org)
that is able to convert from GPX to a lot of proprietary formats. If
you submit a file from your own for inclusion in the collection, I will
try to make the conversion for you, so it is not mandatory that you send
the file in GPX format.
Tenerife (Canary Islands) - Bus
|This file contains 3414 bus stops of TITSA,
the public bus company of Tenerife island. The waypoints have been
automatically generated from data available on the pages of TITSA.
Bus lines numbers are included in the comments of the waypoint.
Paris (France) - Metro/Subway
|This file contains 302 stations of the RATP metro
in Paris. The waypoints have been automatically generated from data
available on the pages of the RATP web site. It should be noted that
although metro stations in Paris have usually several exits, only
one waypoint exists for each station. It is located at a position
that should be around the center of the station and you should be
able to visually find one or more exits near it. Some have been checked
during a trip in Paris and seem to be ok.
Marseille (France) - Metro/Subway
|This file contains 24 stations of the RTM metro
of Marseille. The waypoints have been manually entered in MapSource
from a printed map of the city. Some have been checked during a trip
in Marseille and seem to be ok.
Toulouse (France) - Metro/Subway
|This file contains 17 stations of the metro
of Toulouse. The waypoints have been manually entered in MapSource
from a printed map of the city. Some have been checked during a
trip in Toulouse and seem to be ok.
