Welcome to the Developers section. The STM wishes to provide developers with data about its bus schedules and routes and information about its metro service.

GTFS STM :: The métro passe to timetables

The GTFS produced by the STM since 2008 have always broadcast a service offer for the 4 métro lines based on frequency.

This practice will definitely change for schedules starting next fall. Indeed, from August 22, 2022, the métro service offer will be presented in timetable format. As we do for the bus service.

Until then, we're making the new file format available to you so you can have a smooth transition. You will find this new file at the following address:

GTFS - realtime data (real-time bus schedules and locations) and API i3 (métro, bus and elevators service updates)

To access the GTFS - realtime
data and the API i3, connect
to the STM developer portal

To access the GTFS - realtime data and the API i3, connect to the STM developer portal

  • More information about GTFS realtime
  • Documentation on how to use our API can be found on the STM developer portal
