Data that can only be found here:
- Historic maps and schedules
This is a tremendous dataset (~8GB all told) put together by Dave Walters of the Cincinnati Transit Historical Association. It consists mostly of scanned raster PDFs of every local transit map and schedule that could be found. They go back as far as the 1930’s and get more complete closer to the present.
Data that I’m hosting here as a backup because it’s important and I don’t trust it to stay where it is:
(go directly to the source if it’s still available)
- TANK GTFS archive
- SORTA GTFS archive
Suggested external resources:
- The National Transit Database
A program of the Federal Transit Administration. All major transit agencies are required to report certain statistics on a regular basis.
OSM has some well-developed, but still incomplete, data on the region’s transit routes and infrastructure. Other aspects of the data are very complete.
- Open Data Cincy
Now defunct, but still hosting some very interesting datasets.
- The Cincinnati Area GIS (CAGIS)
CAGIS is a big stinking mess of undocumented crap. But if you want something simple like a file with all the building footprints in Hamilton county, and you don’t want or need to know anything about it, CAGIS is the place for you.

If I promised anywhere on the blog or elsewhere that I would have some particular piece of data here and you don’t see it, I may have taken it down for a good reason. Or maybe not. I probably still know where it is though, so send me an email and I can probably get it to you.
