Sound Transit is a centralized publisher of data provided by the transit agencies throughout the region. Issues with data quality often need to be coordinated across agencies to fix effectively and can take some time to implement. To report a new issue please, email the details to email@example.com.

Consolidated GTFS File Set
The Consolidated GTFS provides a single, merged GTFS file set for the region.
The Consolidated GTFS merges all of the available regional GTFS bundles and attempts to resolve areas of data overlap, seen in a small number of shapes, routes, stops, and trips which conflict across agencies. Those conflicts have been addressed by prepending the agency number + "-" in front of the primary key id to keep it unique. The trip conflicts are the only ones likely to cause issues, as those trips will not match realtime data without modification. For example, Intercity Transit trip id 1501 after consolidation is now 19_1501.
Any feedback regarding issues with the Consolidated Feed is welcome: firstname.lastname@example.org.
