Actual (not predicted) arrivals and departures


Is it possible to know from the arrival predictions whether a vehicle ever actually arrived? On the Metropolitan line some trains change schedule during their run to become fast/semi-fast, which creates ambiguity in the predicted-arrival stream.

The best solution, if it were possible, would be streams of actual arrivals and departures, in addition to the predicted ones.

Actual arrival / departure times (historic / not predicted)

Hi, I would really appreciate a response to this. Thanks.


Hi, Please could TFL respond to this request? Actual arrival times must exist somewhere because you have performance reports about lateness and lost customer hours etc.


Please would TFL respond to this request.


Hi @nacnudus,
Firstly, I apologise for the delay in replying your message.
The system Trackernet which gives us the predictions information doesn’t currently provide this information to us to share as open data. We can suggest that you can request a FOI if you need the information.
