"The National Transit Map is a nationwide catalog of fixed-guideway and fixed-route transit service in America that is gleaned from publically available information. A geospatial database is included that can be used to display transit agencies’ stops, routes, and schedules for the purpose of supporting research, analysis, and planning.

The initial National Transit Map, released in August 2016, consists of data submitted to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) in response to a March 2016request for the data from U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.
