We were established on October 15th 2016 to provide sales and ticketing platforms for public transport operators, and to be the national repository for time table data in Norway. Entur also provides customer services which make it easier to plan, compare and buy tickets across all public transport modes, such as bus, train, ferry, subway, and tram. This includes a travel planning service based largely on open-source software such as OpenTripPlanner and open data such as OpenStreetMap. The data we collect is repackaged into openly available free to use API endpoints or data files which can be used under our terms of services.
Because of our extensive use of OpenStreetMap, close cooperation with its community is very important to us and allows us to integrate our systems better with the current state of the Norwegian map. Since our needs are specific and not always covered by the community efforts, we have invested considerable effort in contributing to the map on a large scale. We have clarified our intentions for our mapping here, and intend to follow the OSMF organised mapping policy.
We also offer courses for our public transport partners in OpenStreetMap-editing, the related tools for working on OpenStreetMap, and various peripheral usages of OpenStreetMap-related systems.
