Please note that metro schedules are provided for your information and are  used to determine how long a trip will take. They cannot be used to develop an application for metro schedules, as they are used only to estimate the time needed to travel between two stations.

There is a page on this website where all the transit apps using the STM data are listed. You'll see a description and a logo for each app. With this information, the clients will be able to find the app that suits their needs.
