The datasets on this page were produced by the GIS Lab at the Newman Library of Baruch College, CUNY using the Data Feeds from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the GIS files from the NJ Office of Information Technology. They represent NYC transit bus, rail, and subway routes and stops. It was created so that members of the public would have access to well-documented and readily-usable GIS layers of NYC mass transit features. The point and line layers are in a shapefile format, projected in NAD 83 NY State Plane Long Island (feet).

Please review the metadata for a description of the contents, creation, and use limitations of the shapefiles. The data is intended for non-commercial use for basic geographic analysis and mapping purposes, and will be updated bi-annually. This page contains the most recent version of the data (Jan 2017). For previous version see the NYC Mass Transit Spatial Layers Archive.
