Hi all

You also have CHOUETTE which is open source 
(https://github.com/dryade/chouette2, and a nice demo 
id:opendata at cityway.fr pass:opendata with some french open data sets 
CHOUETTE is available in French and in English
It has GTFS, NEPTUNE and NeTEx import and export (the latest, NeTEx,  
being the very new CEN standard for scheduled public transport data 
exchange), and was recently added a KML export ...
CHOUETTE also provides a Web Service access to all is PT data 
It uses open street map, provides some data validation tools, and has a 
nice web UI to visualize and edit PT data.

Also a nice post from Marc Florisson (in french...) 
and an overview of its features www.aurigetech.com/public/img/CHOUETTE.png


PS: There is ongoing call for tender, from French transport department, 
to support CHOUETTE development and communication.
