history[edit]

On 29 December 2006 the bulk of timetable was moved to this page, for the edit history see also [1].

Cleanup[edit]

This article badly needs cleanup. I invite any experienced editors to cleanup this article. Regards, Anthonycfc [TC] 17:22, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

recent trends suggestion[edit]

I'm the author of the the referenced link, my motivation is to ease repeated selections on user interfaces like online timetables. The algorithm behind this new user interface is published here.

suggested text:

In 2010 definite filters are introduced to online timetable interfaces [1], that provide intuitive selection of stations without search on kiosk terminals. --Taipu (talk) 10:03, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Schedule optimization systems[edit]

Algorithms for Robust and online Railway optimization: Improving the Validity and reliAbility of Large scale systems ARRIVAL is an optimization programs for rail transport. Perhaps that the introduction of such computer software has importance here ? See http://arrival.cti.gr/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.242.240.112 (talk) 13:57, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

General cleanup[edit]

I have given the article a pretty brutal cleanup, I hope people are not offended. I will do more on it over the next 24 hours or so. It needs a section of mobile timetables (ie on phones) and on the use of QR codes. The history section could do with a lot more detail. I bet the Chinese and Greeks had timetables? There were certainly timetables for early stagecoach services (of an approximate nature) and we should mention railway time which was created so that timetables could work properly.

Scope to be limited to representation of schedules?[edit]

I suggest that we limit the scope of this article to the representation of public transport schedules, rather than getting into the whole business about how they are designed with discussions about running boards, duties, rotas, layovers and the rest. That is a complex enough subject for another article - I am not sure that one exists yet, if it doesn't then it should probably be created. PeterEastern (talk) 17:42, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Removal of images[edit]

I missed the tagging of the images in the Wikipedia Commons that have just been deleted which means that I can't now see the reason for their removal. The images were definitely OK. Can anyone tell me why they were removed? I am reluctant to go to the effort of loading them again just to have the same thing happen again. PeterEastern (talk) 17:53, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Transport/Trains[edit]

The trains project has been added - as the predominant timetable being addressed by the articles is trains - not sure transport should have the sole role - and it is defginitely not a template SatuSuro 00:01, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

French stations are full of 'pocket timetables' for specific sections, e.g. a timetable for Paris–Marseille or Strasbourg–Montpellier. This includes connections with changes and both regional and long-distance trains, slow or fast, day or night. I don't have a citation, I just speak from experience. --Gerrit CUTEDH 17:27, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Graphical trainplan[edit]

Article needs info on graphical trainplan timetables, e.g. like this. --Gerrit CUTEDH 17:29, 4 July 2012 (UTC)
