We just received the CC BY waiver from TfNSW. That includes their GTFS feed (transport routes and stops), cycle network data, boat rames (those seem more directly useful to OSM).

Hi Sebastian,

Currently we are mostly focusing on A to B trip planning for public transport modes including walking.  So our main focus atm is to enhance the data  around interchanges i.e. stations layouts to support routing indoors as well as outdoors.  Saying that, we are determined to contribute to all attributes within the osm database based on internal and external feedback.

Guidelines – I would say that  we need more assistance/guidance from the osm users like yourself in most instances:)  but  yes we would contribute in discussion and wiki if needed.
Based on discussion that I have had internally for the last few days we feel that making the data available in osm by importing and regularly maintain the data  like bus stops is the way to go rather than telling the users how to map ie naming  a bus stop.  So based on that we are now actively working on getting approval for a waiver signed for bus stops in particular so we can proceed.  If successful, more datasets would follow.

Maybe discussion for later date but I feel that other datasets like suburbs and address data could be updated (bulk import) into osm on regular basis as more and more consumers are directly taking the osm database into their products.  Hopefully we can get waivers signed and go down that path.

I will keep you posted with any developments on the waiver(s).  In the meantime please let us know if you have specific questions related to public transport.


Defiantly interested in regular local meetups.  Unfortunately cannot make the 30 March.


Regards,
Sigurjon

Hi Sigurjon,
Welcome and thanks for reaching out.
I like that you set up the wiki page to tell us how you use OSM. What I'm wondering is, are there rules, key topics etc TfNSW or better your group is focusing on in their contributions?

Would you be interested to provide or document in the wiki mapping examples for e.g. bus stops?

Regards Sebastian
PS: you might be interested in local meet ups, see other thread.

Hi all,

My name is Sigurjon and I work for the Transport for NSW (TfNSW) Data Services team which is a small but dedicated group which underpin the many digital products and projects that form part of TfNSW as a whole. The team are responsible for sourcing, managing and providing data with an emphasis on quality and efficiency.

The TfNSW Data Services team aim to contribute and help improve OpenStreetMap, which we started to use in our products like the TfNSW Trip Planner (https://transportnsw.info/trip#/) from the end of 2018, through review and updates that are identified as part of their wide reaching day-to-day activities, feedback from their extensive network of customer/public facing channels, and other TfNSW internal stakeholders.

You can find further information on our wiki page https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/TfNSW

Please don’t hesitate to contact me on Sigurjon.Runarsson at transport.nsw.gov.au<mailto:Sigurjon.Runarsson at transport.nsw.gov.au>, https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Maradona11 or use our group mailbox and another member of the team will endeavour to help you: timetable at transport.nsw.gov.au<mailto:timetable at transport.nsw.gov.au>
