General Bikeshare Feed
|Version||v 1.0 released by NABSA 5 November 2015|
|Current Status||Published and broadly adopted|
|Implementing Agencies||Municipal agencies, bikeshare technology companies|
|Founding/Sponsoring Organizations||North American Bikeshare Association (NABSA)|
The General Bikeshare Feed Specification (GBFS) was developed in 2015 based on an initial specification developed by Mitch Vars. The specification is primarily aimed at use by end users of bikeshare systems, and it therefore focuses on read-only, real-time or near real-time data on bike availability. As such, it is not designed to provide historical or archival data on trips or system usage.
Led by NABSA members, GBFS has seen extremely broad adoption with hundreds of public and private bikeshare programs.
