Geocoder API

Contact Info

  • realCity, Hungary


  • Initial version (June 2021)
  • Updated to use Lucene (March 2022)


This adds the required geocode API required for Stop and From/To searches in the debug client using Lucene to index and search.

To enable this you need to add the feature SandboxAPIGeocoder in otp-config.json.

The API endpoint is available at /otp/routers/{routerId}/geocode, and supports the following query string parameters:

Parameter Description
query The query string we want to geocode
autocomplete Whether we should use the query string to do a prefix match
stops Search for stops, either by name or stop code
clusters Search for clusters by their name
corners Search for street corners using at least one of the street names
