MTA Open Data Program

We have renewed our commitment to transparency and to our obligation to share our data publicly. Read about our Open Data Program.

Updated June 30, 2023

Our open data plan

The MTA moves millions of people every day, and we work hard to build trust and confidence in MTA services. It’s critical that public transit is safe, reliable, and fast — and that the public has input on our ongoing efforts to improve. We aim to share as much data that is in the public interest as we can, and to work with the community to understand their priorities.

Our commitment

The MTA is committed to being open and accountable to the public, and today has a robust program to share a wide array of information. We welcome external review and validation of our work, and value the increased trust in our work that will bring. We also value third-party use of our data in innovative ways: to provide better customer information and service, and to propose new analytical approaches our teams can consider and use. You can read more about what we’re doing beyond Open Data to further our transparency in our Annual Open Data Plan Update.

Under our renewed Open Data Program, we have begun to share substantially more data and make it easier to find and use. We promise to:

  1. Submit all data that we already make public on this website to the NYS Open Data Portal.
  2. Publish the data that we release via our monthly Board and Committee books.
  3. Publish our plan and schedule for sharing to the NYS Open Data Portal all publishable agency data (completed in April 2022).
  4. Implement our plan over the next two years.
