National public transport access node (NaPTAN) schemas and guidance.
The national public transport access nodes (NaPTAN) database is a UK nationwide system for uniquely identifying all the points of access to public transport in the UK. It is a core component of the UK national transport information infrastructure. It is used by a number of other UK standards and information systems with every type of transport terminal allocated at least 1 identifier.
NaPTAN consists of:
- a standard for identifying and naming access points to public transport
- a database of all the access points in the UK
- the XML schema for exchanging data or an alternative CSV exchange format version
The NaPTAN database is maintained by Landmark under contract to the Department of Transport in a restricted form. NaPTAN data can be accessed via user login and updated through a separate file upload system. The national database is freely available for download on Data.gov.uk.
The NaPTAN last submissions status shows the most recent update by local authority.
