Every now and then, we get requests from developers who would like to use our public transit data in applications they work on. If you’re one of them, we welcome you: This page is for you!

Our transit data is available in the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS). This dataset includes schedule data for all fixed routes and trolley routes of Knoxville Area Transit (KAT).

Our GTFS data is hosted by the City of Knoxville, and it is updated when routes change. You can download and use this data free of charge. Click here to be redirected to this source.

To learn more about GTFS in general, please visit Google’s dedicated page. To report any inconsistencies, or if you have any questions or comments about it, please send an email to

Happy Developing!
