RGRTA (the Authority) makes data available to the community through an application programming interface platform. The Authority provides the platform to give software developers the opportunity to make public transportation a convenient and integrated part of daily life.
The Authority does not share sensitive security information. The Authority may terminate availability of, support to, or existing access to the platform at any time without prior notice.
To get access to the API data, you must provide basic personal information. Your information is:
- Used to create a unique API key code

Information stored on an Authority system or database may be subject to a request for records under the New York Freedom of Information Law (FOIL); in connection with a discovery request in a lawsuit; or in connection with another type of legal proceeding.
Certain activities, whether legal or illegal, may be harmful to Authority systems, violate Authority rules or subject you to a liability. The Authority will immediately terminate API access and support for any user connected to such activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Malicious cycle pinging, calling or spamming the API platform.
