Access the Transit Partner Dashboard

Once you've confirmed that you're eligible to participate in Google Transit, your first step is to submit an interest form. The Google team will review your request and, if approved, will create a Transit Partner Dashboard for you. Our Transit Partner Dashboard allows you to monitor and manage your data feed. 

The dashboard has three levels of access control:

  • Owner: make changes in the dashboard and add / remove other users

  • Edit (Recommended): make changes in the dashboard (e.g., upload or delete a feed)

  • View: read only access

The contact email address provided in your interest form will automatically get owner access and can provide either edit or view access to additional users in Settings

To get whitelisted access to the dashboard, your email address must be 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, email your Google team.

Configure notifications

Each user can customize the notifications they receive from the Transit Partner Dashboard. Email notifications are sent on a regular basis to provide insight into any issues with your feed. We recommend that you provide at least one technical contact to address data issues if we run into problems with your feed.

  1. Open the Transit Partner Dashboard

  2. Select your feed

  3. Click Static Feed

  4. Click Feed Settings

  5. Click Edit

  6. Check the box to opt in on notifications
