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). 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). The route files for the subway and the railroads include style files for QGIS (.qml) and ArcGIS (.lyr).

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.

Bus

PLEASE NOTE - each borough file may include, or may be missing, routes and stops for buses that originate in a neighboring borough.
