OneBusAway API Service Terms of Use

See also:

Purpose

The OneBusAway API service (the "Service" or the “API”) is made available by OneBusAway and the Sound Tranist ("OneBusAway") to enable developers to access public transit information and present it to riders in new and interesting ways that are complementary, but not competitive with, OneBusAway's other services.  With this in mind, OneBusAway reserves the right to continually review and evaluate all uses of the API.  By using the Service, you agree to be bound by the following terms of use ("Terms").

Changes

OneBusAway reserves the right to change or revise these Terms at any time.  You are responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms of Use and checking for updates.  Your continued use of the Service after the effective date of such changes will constitute acceptance of and agreement to such changes.  If you do not wish to be bound to any new terms, you must immediately cease use of the Service.

OneBusAway reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part thereof), temporarily or permanently, with or without notice to you. You agree that OneBusAway will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

Registration

In order to access or use the Service, you must first register for and receive a valid OneBusAway API key.  You are only allowed to register for and use one API key per application, unless otherwise permitted by OneBusAway in writing.  All requests sent to the Service must reference your valid API key.  You agree to keep your API key confidential and not to share it with any third party.

Restrictions

Any web pages, scripts, widgets, applications, or other software that presents data from the Service must include the following legend, prominently displayed: "Public transit data powered by OneBusAway" unless otherwise agreed to by OneBusAway in writing.  Other than displaying this legend, you are not authorized to make any use of any proprietary marks of OneBusAway, Sound Transit or the University of Washington, including without limitation "OneBusAway", the associated OneBusAway logo, or any similar variant thereof.

You shall not:

  • Use the Service in a way that directly replicates existing OneBusAway functionality without providing some substantial additional, complementary functionality;
  • Use the Service in a way that is prohibited by any law, regulation or governmental order or decree in any relevant jurisdiction, or that violates any Third Party’s legal rights;
  • Use the Service in a way that could harm it or impair any third party’s use of it;
  • Use the Service to try to gain unauthorized access to any service, data, account or network by any means;
  • Remove, modify, or tamper with any regulatory or legal notice or link that is incorporated into the Service.

Termination

OneBusAway reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to or use of the Service for any reason, including without limitation our belief that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of these Terms may occur without prior notice to you, and you also agree that OneBusAway will not be liable to you for any termination of your access to the Service.  Upon any termination of these Terms of Use, your permission to use the Service is thereby terminated, and you shall promptly delete and remove all calls to the Service from all web pages, scripts, widgets, applications, and other software in your possession or under your control.
