MTA Commuter Rail Real-Time Feed Datasets

All of the datasets conform to the GTFS RT specification located at https://developers.google.com/transit/gtfs-realtime/

This feed implements the Trip Updates portion of the specification.

Within the TripUpdate.VehicleDescriptor, the label refers to the train number represented in the GTFS schedule Trip.trip_short_name. This is how you would link the train status from the GTFS RT to the GTFS schedule.
