I’d like to find data that tells me, for a given service/train, the ‘capacity’ of said train. By ‘capacity’, I mean the number of seats.
I am using the Sydney GTFS static download which provides details of trips, services etc.
I have looked at the Train Occupancy - Nov 2016 to Feb 2017 datasets which looks like it goes some of the way there though I’m not sure if I’m interpreting the ‘occupancy status’ and ‘occupancy range’ data items. I have read the explanatory notes and am still uncertain.
Are they both indicators of actual occupancy? Or, is one actual occupancy and the other potential capacity?
I would like to get an estimate of the potential ‘capacity’ of a given train which is, essentially, the number of carriages and carriage type. I’m confident of inferring carriage type from the abovementioned data but not the number.
Any thoughts appreciated.
