Common Transport Format (Transportformatet, TRP)

Preface

This edition of the Common Transport Format of Traffic Data for Samtrafiken and its Owners Version 3.0 replaces Version 2.0 which was approved by Samtrafiken’s board in May 1993.

From 1993 until the present day the Transport Format has undergone three important phases of adjustments. These phases are as follows:

  • 1993.  The Transport Format entered into use for the transmission of traffic data from SJ and PTAs (Public Transport Authorities = THM) to Samtrafiken and within Samtrafiken
  • 1997.  The National Database (RDB) and the Journey Planner entered into service thus placing new demands on the Transport Format
  • 2000.  Tågkompaniet started to utilise traffic data from RDB in accordance with the Transport Format for their booking system “Tag Plats”.

1. Introduction

The target group for this document consists of all the companies that intend to exchange traffic information. The document has been prepared by Samtrafiken in collaboration with the PTAs, rail companies and most of the PTA’s system suppliers.

PTA in this document refers to all traffic companies in the roll of owning the traffic.

2. General Information

This section is intended for those who wish to order or develop export and/or import applications to/from other timetable databases.

Data is transferred to/from (TDB) via a transport document constructed in a format agreed by Samtrafiken’s owners and Samtrafiken. The format enables data to be exchanged between other systems in different data environments and RDB.

The Transport Format is physically comprised of a data file in text format that can be exchanged via different types of media. Making a data delivery always requires complete information regarding a Company, PTA or suppliers.

2.1 Requirements of External Systems

An external system means a database system for timetable data at the Company, PTA or suppliers.

Certain requirements for the external system must be fulfilled if the system is to be able to send and retrieve data to/from RDB and to interpret the data correctly.

2.2 Requirements for Delivering Data to TDB

External systems must be able to write data in the Transport Format described below. Selection of data from the external system must be possible for a specified period limited by a start date as well as by a selection of lines.

Certain post types are obligatory, others optional. In certain cases the information is obligatory in so far as a value must be given. If the external system lacks such information a default value must be stated.

2.3 Requirements for Retrieving Data from TDB

External systems must be able to read data in the Transport Format described below.

An important requirement for how the external system reads the Transport Format is that the system accepts all post types 00-99. This is important so that Samtrafiken can successively implement new post types in the Transport Format without requiring changes in the external systems.

A post type with data that is uninteresting for the external system or that contains an unknown post type can be ignored completely when reading data from the Transport Format.

The external system must interpret data in accordance with this document as far as is possible. Responsibility for use of data from RDB in the external system as regards imperfect interpretation of TDB data is the sole responsibility of the procurer of timetable data.

2.4 Calendar Handling

TDB can handle timetable data from different Company/PTAs or suppliers with differing traffic calendars and traffic periods. Traffic data from and to TDB is always to be supplied according to the international calendar.

2.5 Standard Values

Standard values for obligatory information must be applied in those cases where the information cannot be supplied by any other means. Standard values for different types of fields are shown in the Catalogue of Terms.

All numerical fields must be right justified. Any other characters + or - that may be needed must be fitted within the field width specified in the Catalogue of Terms.

Values are to be zero filled. (There are exceptions)

If information is missing for a numeric field then the value 0 must be given if no other standard value has been specified for the field in the Catalogue of Terms.

2.6 Text in Fields

All alphanumerical fields are to be left justified unless otherwise specified in the Catalogue of Terms for the field. The values are to be filled in to the full field width with space characters.

3. Catalogue of Terms

The Catalogue of Terms contains all formats and variants of terms with unique significance. The different terms’ independence (i.e. object dependence) importance is apparent from this catalogue.

30 - Trip identity/header

A trip refers to a defined segment where traffic is conducted in a specified time period. A trip can result in different trip variants depending on information regarding

  • departure dates
  • waiting at stop
  • announced time
  • different comfort levels

This means that a trip in this post is the equivalent of a trip variant. Different trip variants may not be put together, or devided, unless all different values connected to each trip variant is handled correctly.


The validity of a trip is defined in the following positions in the 30-post

DAGKOMB position 38-44 (Days of the week),

FROMDATUM position 45-52 (Period starting date, this date shall be included) and

TOMDATUM position 53-60 (Period ending date, this date shall also be included in the period).

Exceptions from this validity information are given in 34 posts following each 30 post.


Product codes (PRODKOD) and booking codes (BOKKOD) are specified in the 30-post when the entire trip variant is applicable.


Product- and booking details for part of the trip as well as groups of carriages (in a train) are always found in post 37. On-demand information with regard to a trip is found in post 36.


Comfort code (KOMKOD) regards comfort level and encompasses the entire trip variant. Some are only included in 30-posts (like A, B, AB, C and W denoting different types of cars), while others are only included in 37-posts and a few may be included in both 30- and 37-posts. Such description will be supplied in each special case.


NB. Positions 61-69 and 81-89 have alternative use depending on the value: a) and c) Swedish stop signatures only. b) and d) Non-Swedish stop numbers only. This means either shall positions indicated by a) or the two b) be used. Also, either shall positions indicated by c) or the two d) be used.

NB2: Samtrafiken may (after some rethinking) accept national non-swedish signatures as well, as soon as the codes do not collide with national swedish signature.

34 - Trip - timetable period exceptions

Exceptions from the validity given in the previous 30 post, these are defined in one or more 34-posts.

Exceptions must be within the 30 post’s period (not before the start date or after the end date as defined by FROMDATUM and TILLDATUM).

The type of adjustment, is defined in position 4 TURUNDTYP where

“+” means that the trip operates on this day or for this period too.

“–“ means that the trip is cancelled on this day or for this period.

The exception dates are given in position 5-12 FROMDATUM (Period starting date) and in position 13-20 TOMDATUM (Period ending date).

Example: An adjustment of only one date is written: 2012060120120601 (same date June 1st 2012 in both positions. A period is written for instance 2012060120130117 (meaning June 1st 2012 up to and including January 17th 2013.

The positions 21-38 are intended for the stop sequence concerned in the case not all of the stop sequence is affected by the adjustment.
These positions are not yet in use

  • since the proper interpretation of the data can get rather complicated and
  • the receiving system (RDB - IVU.pool) is not tested with such data.


The sorting of the 34 can be essential, since the periods (FROMDATUM to TOMDATUM) of subsequent 34-posts may overlap.
34-posts are interpreted from to to bottom.

35 - Trip departures and arrivals

All mandatory data concerning each departure or arrival of a trip is given in 35-posts.

A departure (position 4-25) is written:

(DYGN) refers to the 24 hour day and is a relative measure from the first departure. It means that first 24 hour day gets value ‘01’. If the trip continues into the next 24 hour day such departures or arrival gets the value (02) after midnight.

(KLOCKSLAG) is the departure or arrival time in hours and minutes (ex. 1758)

(THMNR) is the Company/PTA (to define who’s stop it is) (ex. 123)

(HPLNR) is the Company’s/PTA’s (from above) stop where the trip stops. (ex. 001234)

(UPHKOD) indicates if boarding/disembarking is allowed (ex. 1), or not allowed (ex. 0)

(TURBET) is announced trip number for this section of the trip. Using this field it is possible for the announced trip number to vary along the route.


The same set of data is written also on the same row for the first arrival (but in positions 26-47) after the departure above.


(TURNR) Technical trip number is added for the departure in positions (56-61) and for the trip arrival in position (62-67). Not yet in use.


There is two different philosophies used in different situations regarding the handling of “DYGN” in combination with “KLOCKSLAG”. The alternative way to the one described below is when “DYGN” is always “01” and “KLOCKSLAG” uses values above 2400 instead.

36 - Trip departure’s and arrival’s footnotes

This post belongs to a stop specified in the closest post 35 above it and contains attribute information referring to either, the arrival to, or the departure from, this stop.

The post is used for different purposes with the use of position 5-7 TYP (type) and position 8-10 KOD (code) as follows                                          Type (5-7)      Code (8-10)

1                    - Free text                            FOT                FOT

2                    - On-demand information    FOT                BES - "FOTBES" is correct for export (Silverrail), for import (IVU) use "TIDBES"

3a                  - Connections                       TID                 ANS  - Used for guaranteed connections, valid for all usages.

3b                                                              TID                 BRU - Used for non-allowed connections, valid for all usages.

3c                                                              TID                 AND - Used for guaranteed connections. Should not be displayed/used in "printed" time tables.

3d                                                              TID                 BRD - Used for non-allowed connections. Should not be displayed/used in "printed" time tables.

The fields used for above 6 cases is as follows. Mandatory markings below depend on these cases. (36-post is optional).

1    1-10, 120-377

2    1-10, 11-41, 87-93, 120-377

3    1-10, 64-109, 372-377


The validity of the attribute in a 36-post is defined by (when used according to above)

DAGKOMB position 87-93 (Days of the week),

FROMDATUM position 94-101 (Period starting date, this date shall be included) and

TOMDATUM position 102-109 (Period ending date, this date shall be included).


On-demand trips (“BES” identifier) will be described separately.


Each 36 post in a transport format file shall be entered on its own with an own calendar validity for instance in an importing system (i.e. RDB). 36 posts are only allowed to be merged in an importing system (i.e. RDB) if they belong to the same trip and are identical except for the stop value they belong to in the transport format import file. In that case they are only allowed to be merged if the same 36-post applies to all stops in a stops equence, for instance B, C, D, E and F, which would turn into B-F.

If the dates defined in the 32, 36 or 37 posts shall be adjusted they are defined in 39 posts. Modifcations are either cancellations or extra validity periods. Exceptions must be within the 32, 36 or 37 post’s period.

A 39 post can only exist directly after the 32, 36- or 37-post they belong to.

The type of adjustment, cancelled or extra, is defined in position 4 TURUNDTYP where

      “+” means the attribute validity is extra this day or for this period.

      “–“ means the attribute validity is excepted for this day or for this period.

Dates concerned are entered in position 5-12 FROMDATUM (Period starting date) and in position 13-20 TOMDATUM (Period ending date).

Example: An adjustment of only one date is written: 2012060120120601 (same date June 1st 2012 in both positions. A period is written for instance 2012060120130117 (meaning June 1st 2012 up to and including January 17th 2013.
