    There's a ton of data available via the Socrata Open Data API (SODA) via https://data.sfgov.org. You can find an awful lot of data through that portal. Some of them point to other external sources like this one: https://www.sfmta.com/getting-around/transit/schedules-trip-planners/accessing-nextmuni-vehicle-prediction-data and ftp://avl-data.sfmta.com/avl_data/avl_raw

    The Open Source Application Development Portal (OSADP) is a web-based portal which provides access to and supports the collaboration, development and use of open source transportation-related applications. Together, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and OSADP facilitate the advancement of research, development, planning, testing, and deployment of connected vehicle and traveler-related applications and ITS. The OSADP features source code, software, applications, and resources (e.g., documentation, licenses, data) to support the use of or further development of these applications.

    Public agencies, service providers, researchers, application developers, and others are and others are invited to visit the OSADP at http://itsforge.net to explore how they may use these available applications and resources.

    OSADP support is available at osadptech@gmail.com.

    511 SF Bay provides several data feeds for developers who'd like to create applications, widgets, and other tools using 511 data. It also provide customizable tools and features for use on your own website. All data sources and tools are free-of-charge. 511 asks that you simply provide attribution to 511; details are provided in the agreement for each data feed or tool.

    More information is available at http://511.org/developer-resources.asp and https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/511sfbaydeveloperresources.

    Another USDOT-led initiative to assist developers with their data needs when developing applications for connected vehicles is it's Research Data Exchange or RDE for short.

    Check it out at https://www.its-rde.net.

    The Research Data Exchange (RDE) is developed as a transportation data sharing system that promotes sharing of both archived and real-time data from multiple sources (including vehicle probes) and multiple modes. This new data sharing capability will better support the needs of ITS researchers and developers while reducing costs and encouraging innovation.

    The primary purpose of the Connected Data Systems (CDS) Research Data Exchange is to provide a variety of data-related services that support the development, testing, and demonstration of multi-modal transportation mobility applications being pursued under the USDOT ITS Dynamic Mobility Applications (DMA) Program and other connected vehicle research activities. Data accessible through the Research Data Exchange will be well-documented and freely available to the public. The vision of the CDS Program is to enhance current operational practices and transform future transportation systems management through the active acquisition and systematic provision of integrated data from infrastructure, vehicles, and travelers. This data is available to researchers, application developers, and others.

    In addition to 511 data Virginia mentioned above, additional 511 transit data can be accessed. These new datasets are expected to be launched in June, 2016. We are making them available for this hackathon temporarily through a dedicated security token that will be disabled soon after the hackathon. Virginia will have the security token available at the hackathon. If you find value and would like to use these datasets in future, please join our Google group mentioned in earlier post by Virginia. We will inform the group when these datasets become available for all. Pre-production specification documents for these additional data is available at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-DP2E7Gr2VlRVZDNVh3Y2V5Zm8/view?usp=sharing. All URL endpoints are included in this document.
