+New Orleans Regional Transit Authority
+######################################
+
+Here is the code I used for `the essays I wrote <https://bryanbrattlof.com/
+norta/>`__ on `my website <https://bryanbrattlof.com>`__. Each script assumes
+you are running at least Python 3.6. All other dependencies are listed in
+``requirements.txt`` that can be installed via pip:
+
+.. code-block::
+
+ $ pip install -r requirements.txt
+
+The Data-set
+############
+
+A few years ago New Orleans, Louisiana published an API with the real time
+location of all the buses and streetcars they had in service in the city for a
+new website and iOS/Android app. I began collecting this data on February 1,
+2019, making requests to the API every minute (with cron) till October 8th, 2019.
+Totaling just under 360,000 responses from the API.
+
+The API returned a JSON response that I appended to a file called ``bus.log``
+that eventually grew to 5.2G (608M after being tar-balled) when I stopped polling
+the API. This is on the larger end of what I feel comfortable publishing online.
+So if you wish for a copy please `send a DM or email me
+<https://bryanbrattlof.com/connect/>`__ and I'll gladly give you a copy.
