Hello!

I am creating a general network for public transport, and pedestrian, following the template given from esri. have used GTFS data from the train operator, bus operator and a road network. My question is if the accumulated transit time i recieve from the analysis can be seperated between bus and train?

I have looked for different solutions, to see if i can add another evaluator with the tables from the gtfs dataset, or to add parameters, however i have not figured it out yet. 

I hope there is a solution, any help is appreciated!

This is a very reasonable request, but unfortunately it's not possible with out-of-the-box tools to determine which mode of transit was used in the analysis.  It's a limitation of the Network Analyst architecture.  However, to get around this limitation, you can run a post-process using the Copy Traversed Source Features With Transit tool in the downloadable Transit Network Analysis Tools toolbox.  See https://github.com/Esri/public-transit-tools/blob/master/transit-network-analysis-tools/UsersGuide.m... for a description of this tool.  The tool includes the RunID in the output, and you can use this field to join the various transit data model tables to get the transit mode.

You can download that toolbox from the GitHub site linked above or from ArcGIS.com at http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=23cc1b720eb0418db4d0e61955b8fe43
