Bus static data?

Hi TfL Team,

Can you advise where the live version of the “Bus stop locations and routes” can now be downloaded from please? https://tfl.gov.uk/info-for/open-data-users/our-open-data?intcmp=3671#on-this-page-3 only offers examples and says you need to log in to get the ‘live feeds’ but signing in just takes me to https://api-portal.tfl.gov.uk/ and from there I can’t find them.

TIA

Simon

The endpoint for Live Buses is http://countdown.api.tfl.gov.uk/interfaces/ura/stream_V1

The documentation for it is this one…

http://content.tfl.gov.uk/tfl-live-bus-river-bus-arrivals-api-documentation.pdf

There is also CSV file of the static data here - https://tfl.gov.uk/tfl/syndication/feeds/bus-sequences.csv

(Re-write as the 1st version was a bit harsh)

Thanks for the link Brian. I was raising it as some of the legacy stuff seems to have been overlooked with the portal revamp.

the legacy stuff seems to have been overlooked with the portal revamp.

Ah yes, they do seem to have left of Trackernet and the Countdown API…

Still, it is much easier to use the new system! You can now ctrl+f to find things in the documentation.

I guess you still need to refer to https://tfl.gov.uk/info-for/open-data-users/our-open-data?intcmp=3671 as well?

Brian,

Yes but the problem with https://tfl.gov.uk/info-for/open-data-users/our-open-data?intcmp=3671 , at least as far as the stop sequence list goes. is that it tells you need to login to get the live data but once you log in, the links don’t change and it’s still only the example data. Probably telling that even after logging in, this page still offers you the ‘Sign in’ link… :frowning:

If anyone from TfL is reading this, a date stamp within the stop sequences file to show when it was last updated would be greatly appreciated! :slight_smile:
