This page provides the information you need to reference or download schemas. It includes:

  • 2.5 schema documentation
  • 2.4 schema documentation
  • 2.1 schema documentation
  • TransXChange example documents
  • Samples of real TransXChange documents (real EBSR registrations)

TransXChange is used both for the electronic registration of bus routes (EBSR) with Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and the Traffic Area Networks (TAN), and for the exchange of bus routes with other computer systems, such as journey planners and vehicle real-time tracking systems.
