Stadtwerke Münster

Stadtwerke Münster’s goal was to be the first public transit agency on Google Transit in Germany. They worked with con terra GmbH to use FME for translating bus timetable information into the GTFS format.

FME automated the data conversion process, helping them accomplish their goals 8 times faster than the neighbouring city which used custom coding.

Data from timetable applications was converted to Google Transit and quality assurance checked using a single FME workspace that can be re-used whenever information changes.

Owned by the citizens of the city, Stadtwerke Münster provides a variety of public services, including transportation of more than 120,000 people on their bus system every day.

"I love FME because it's the coolest way to get data from A to B." -- Benjamin Quest, con terra GmbH
