stations.csvcontains all our data representing train stations and cities. The file is UTF-8 encoded text file and Comma Separated Value (CSV) formatted – although a semi-colon
;is used to delimitate fields. Boolean flags are represented with t/f (true/false) values.
id| Internal unique identifier.
name| Name of the station as it is locally known; see
slug| Guaranteed to be unique across all the suggestable stations; see
uic| The UIC code of the station.
uic8_sncf| SNCF sometimes uses an UIC code with 8 digits instead of 7. The last digit is a checksum.
longitude| Coordinates as decimal value.
latitude| Coordinates as decimal value.
parent_station_id| A station can belong to a meta station whose
idis this value, i.e. Paris Gare d’Austerlitz belongs to the metastation Paris.
country| 2 letters, ISO 3166-1 alpha-2
time_zone| Continent/Country ISO codes.
is_city| This value is unreliable.
is_main_station| This value is unreliable.
is_airport| Specify if the station is related to an airport.
is_suggestable| Specify if the user can input this station.
country_hint| Specify if the country should be displayed to disambiguate the station's name.
sncf_self_service_machine| Presence of a SNCF self-service machine at the station.
same_as| Some systems allow stations to be split in two, with two
idvalues. If provided, the station identified by the given value should be considered as the actual station.
normalised_code| an identifier, which can be used to identify if 2 locations across multiple synchronised sources represent the same location.
Operator specific columns contain identifiers and values specific to the operator. Columns are prefixed with a name unique to the operator.
rt*columns are about ids used in realtime APIs.
|id of the station as it is known by the carrier.|
|Can a ticket be booked to/from the station through that carrier?|
infocolumns contain translations of the station name. The language used is suffixed as an ISO 639-1:2002 code.
info:* | Extra information that is useful in the specific language.
To facilitate the internationalisation of city names, we use and maintain a script querying Geonames API to look for city name translations.
The project is hosted on Github and contains its own documentation.
