I need to convert GTFS (General Transit Feed Specification https://developers.google.com/transit/gtfs/reference), data in some GIS data format like ESRI Shapefile or KML or something else. Do you know any tool for this issue?

Thank you very much in advance

Cesare

There's a tool that goes from GTFS to KML:

and a KML to shape file tool at

Hi Sunil thank you very much for the suggestions. I've tried it and works fine. Another solution I've found is using a JEQL procedure described here lin-ear-th-inking.blogspot.it/2011/10/…. This procedure generate shapefiles starting from GTFS files. Both work! Bye –  Cesare Feb 1 '13 at 12:43

Bob Heitzman's XLS for GTFS spreadsheet tools can import and export KML, as well as its main function to import and export GTFS feed.
