TEC opens up data

It’s a great day for Open Data in Belgium. After all legal hassle with NMBS/SNCB, we can finally have a peace of mind as the Walloon bus company declares they don’t understand why it’s so difficult. This being said, the TEC has officially opened up its time schedules which you can find on the global data portal:


Our friends from openov have been so kind to create a transformation server from the BLTAC format towards GTFS in around 4 hours. Thank you!

Happy coding :)

New: GTFS dumps

Hi all,

Thanks to our Dutch friends from OpenOV, we now have a full open data set for the Belgian railway company in GTFS format.


Please start using the data and provide us with feedback on the mailing list.

As of May 13th, we support SSL on most of our (sub)domains. Some are enforced, while others are optional.

Here’s a list:

Only HTTP:

  • api.iRail.be


  • iRail.be
  • hello.iRail.be


  • data.iRail.be

PlugID and other subdomains will be migrated as well at a later stage.

iRail is IPv6 ready

Good news for the few of you who are IPv6ing!

Thanks to our awesome partner iLibris, all iRail services are now IPv6 enabled.

The nameservers support IPv6 requests as well, and the AAAA records are set… But just in case you want to memorize it, here’s the IP: 2a01:7e00::f03c:91ff:fedf:5fef.

We, dear reader, are ready for the future! ;)
