Transmodel is a European standard data model for public transport, designed to cover multiple transportation means (bus, tramway, trains…) in terms of interoperability, and the places where they meet each-other (e.g. stations, cities, towns, villages). The aim is to support operations, and more precisely schedule and journey planning.
