In certain cases, data provided by Transit Agencies cannot be used without displaying copyright notices to the end user. If the routing response contains this type of data, the service adds operator attribution information to the route response. Operator attribution must be displayed together with a route. This requirement forms part of the terms and conditions of the API.
Example: Operator Attribution in Route Response
If copyright information is available, the response will contain an
Attributions attribute. It contains ready-to-display string (which must be displayed in full on end clients) in the
Link text with id "agency", as well as tariff information in the
Link with id "tariff". See type
Attributions for more details. The sec_ids represents the relevant segments of the trip where the copyright notices apply.
