  "abstract": "<p><strong>gtfsio</strong> offers tools for the development of GTFS-related packages. It establishes a standard for representing GTFS feeds using R data types based on <a href=\"\">Google&rsquo;s Static GTFS Reference</a>. It provides fast and flexible functions to read and write GTFS feeds while sticking to this standard. It defines a basic <code>gtfs</code> class which is meant to be extended by packages that depend on it. And it also offers utility functions that support checking the structure of GTFS objects.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>Bug fixes</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>Fixed a bug (or perhaps, changed the behaviour) of <code><a href=\"\">check_fields_exist()</a></code> and <code><a href=\"\">check_fields_types()</a></code> when a lower-level test (i.e.&nbsp;if the file that holds such field exists, for example) failed. Now it returns <code>FALSE</code> instead of raising an error.</li>\n</ul>",
