Out of curiousity, where are you getting those stop names for the 81? I’ve noticed that there are some mismatches of stop names (and location data) between TfL and Naptan where TfL and non-TfL services use the same stops.
Within London I presumed it would be TfL that provide the stop names to Naptan, so not sure where the discrepancy comes from?

Simon

The data here gives me the info, providing the Naptan codes and Bus stop name (“Stn”)
Although it did provide incorrect Naptan ID, it’s what I did to fetch the missing stops for 315 between Streatham and West Norwood!



Anas

There is no “authority” in the data formats, so any operator can call any of the parts anything they want. Only the issuing of actual Naptan codes is (usually) devolved. I have found the national bus data to be very hard to use because it often unusable.
