  "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><code>import_gtfs()</code> would ocasionally include the full path to a table to their name in a GTFS object (#17). Fixed by Mark Padgham (@mapdge) in #18.</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>New features</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>Added new <code>summary.gtfs</code> method. Thanks Mark Padgham (@mapdge).</li>\n\t<li><code>import_gtfs()</code> has a new <code>encoding</code> parameter, used to handle encoded strings in their native encoding.</li>\n</ul>",
