So a few months ago I created an interactive site for public transports around Paris (here; also check my last post, in french) with a custom map made on Mapbox, and using Navitia’s API for itineraries, next departures, etc. But I thought this map design could be useful on its own, so I changed it so that you can download the data of any city you want very easily and it will be displayed on the map. I guess it can be useful because I don’t see a lot of OSM-based transport maps dealing with coloured bus & train lines. The site for this map is here (without itineraries because they are limited to a few places, but you can click on the data on the map and see the tags of the objects). It uses the Overpass API as well as osmtogeojson.

I also put the files on GitHub. (note : it’s the first time I use it, so I may have made mistakes idk).

Enjoy !

Note : if the layer “trains” doesn’t load, consider unchecking “include regional trains”

A few screeshots :

Tokyo subway network: Tokyo subway network Marseille, France: Marseille, France Tube and stations, London: Tube and stations, London Paris, buses and bus stops only, near Notre-Dame (with extra infor on the objects in the console) : Paris, buses and bus stops only, near Notre-Dame

Pretty neat !

Maybe you could mention that you are using Overpass API and the server ? Their server is used by a lot of projects and having a mention is the least consumers can do :)
