I am a novice.

Aim is to make bus routes in ArcGIS Network Analyst, so specifying two points on the map, I could see what buses to ride with minimal layovers and time.

Please tell me where it is written in detail.


ArcGIS Network Analyst provides network-based spatial analysis, such as routing, fleet routing, travel directions, closest facility, service area, and location-allocation. Using ArcGIS Network Analyst, you can dynamically model realistic network conditions, including one-way streets, turn and height restrictions, speed limits, and variable travel speeds based on traffic. You can easily build networks from your GIS data by using a sophisticated network data model.

The General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) is a recently-developed data format for storing public transit routes, stops, and schedules. GTFS data is used in Google Maps transit trip planning. Many major public transit systems have made up-to-date GTFS data for their systems readily available for download. Add GTFS to a Network Dataset allows you to add GTFS data to an ArcGIS network dataset so you can run schedule-aware analyses using the Network Analyst tools.
