Response format


The response format is identical to the format of the stops call. The <resultSet> tag of a stopdetails response contains two additional attributes, <queryLat> and <queryLon>, containing the query coordinates of the call.
Individual stops are returned through the <location> tag. The tag contains the following attributes:

descDestinationDestinations of the trips servicing the stopdesc="Inbound to Market & Steuart St."

Where the original feeds provide stop parent/child relationships. Parent stops are included in the response as a collection of children stops. The <child> tag lists the children:

AttributeDescriptionKeyUsed inExample
locidStop ID of the childStop ID of the child stoplocid="33979"

Parents do not have associated routes. This means that next bus and train times cannot be called using a stop ID of a parent.
