Access the Transit partner dashboard

The Transit Partner Dashboard lets you set up, manage, monitor your transit feeds, and configure account access for users in your organization. After you grant account access to a user, you can edit their access level or remove their access altogether.

How to access the Transit partner dashboard

After you confirm that you're eligible to participate in Google Transit, you’re ready to request participation via Program Sign-up.

Google reviews your request and, if approved, creates a Transit partner dashboard account for you. Our Transit partner dashboard lets you monitor and manage your feed. 

The Google account provided in your interest form automatically gets owner access and can provide access to more users.

Important: To get access to the dashboard, make sure your email address is associated with a Google Account. Create a new Google Account, or learn how to associate an email with a Google Account.

If you have any problems with access to the Transit Partner Dashboard, contact your Google team.

How to grant access to your account

Your dashboard has 3 levels of access control:

  • Owner: Make changes in the dashboard and add or remove other users
  • Writer (recommended): Make changes in the dashboard (e.g. upload or configure a feed)
  • Reader: Read-only access
You can choose who to grant access to, and the level of access:
  1. Open the Transit partner dashboard.
  2. In the upper left, click Share Share.
  3. In the dialog box, enter the names or emails you want to invite.
  4. To change what people can do to your doc, on the right, click the Down arrow Down arrow and then choose:
    • Owner
    • Reader
    • Writer
  5. Click Invite.

How to customize notifications

Each user can customize which notifications they receive from the Transit partner dashboard. To provide insight into any issues with your feed, email notifications are sent regularly. We recommend that you provide at least one technical contact to address data issues in case we run into problems with your feed.

Set up notifications to provide the information that’s most relevant to you using the following steps:

  1. Open the Transit partner dashboard.
  2. In the upper right corner, click Settings Settings.
  3. Select Email notification settings.
  4. Add email addresses to receive notification.
  5. Select which types of notifications to receive in the menu.
  6. Click Save.
