Comprehensive transport coverage launched for UK, Netherlands & Sweden

We’ve been busy expanding Rome2rio’s transport coverage, and today we’re announcing three major additions. We’ve added comprehensive coverage in the UK, the Netherlands and Sweden. The transport operators of all three countries have recently published their schedule data in GTFS and TransXchange formats and we’ve now integrated their routes into Rome2rio.

The United Kingdom coverage is particularly impressive with over 1,500 bus operators spanning England, Scotland and Wales. In the following maps, blue lines represent train routes and green represents bus lines.

Similarly, our coverage in The Netherlands and Sweden now includes a dense network of bus routes in addition to the rail routes which were already covered.

To date it has been US local transport operators leading the way in publishing full schedules in a digital format. It’s good to see this trend extending into Europe, and Rome2rio will add further complete transport networks as the data becomes available.

As always, if you have any feedback or quality issues regarding the new data, let us know: feedback(at)rome2rio.com.
