GTFS R
The current API environment is no longer able to cope with the sheer volume of requests over a 24 hour period and that is why the NTA is building a new GTFS R environment to be scalable to future proof the open source data set.

This new GTFS R project is currently being developed by the NTA and I would hope to be able to confirm a proposed go live date over the coming weeks.

Fair Usage
Unfortunately due to excessive repeat Real Time searches the open source API will have limited access until the new scalable GTFS R environment has been deployed in 2019.
