I am working for the French ministry of transport and recently
subscribed to the Open Transport (when I learnt that OKFN opened an
office in Paris).
You mentioned that you intend to include French data in your
http://opentripplanner.eu journey planner and that Rennes could be the
only city with GTFS data available.
It might be useful for you to know that we maintain a very crude list of
open data PT networks in France here :
The ministry also maintains open source software available at
www.chouette.com and on github :
- a web server for validating, editing and exchanging public transport
data (called CHOUETTE) in conformance with the French standard profile
Neptune (similar to Transxchange) which can also make conversion to/from
GTFS and work currently on Netex
- a SIRI server (called IRYS)
Also, we maintain a directory of travel information services which is
open data and can be reused e.g. for info portals or and other applications.
It is described here (in French) :
We try on add open data sources here as well :
For the moment the "production" version is still a more limited version
http://www.passim.info but we intend to upgrade in 2013.
If interested please contact me or ask the support at the
www.chouette.mobi site. I travel to Paris from time to time and it will
be a pleasure to meet some of you at OKFN or elsewhere, if there is an
opportunity to do so.
