Car Park Occupancy API Returning Same Values

Hi Everyone,

I was testing the Occupancy > Gets the occupancy for a car park with a given id and Occupancy > Gets the occupancy for all car parks that have occupancy data, and they return the same values no matter what time I call the APIs which doesn’t seem right, I have tried to go through old posts to see if this is a known issue but couldn’t find anything.

Thanks in advance,
Mohamed

Welcome @mohamed

Do you mean making a call to https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Occupancy/CarPark/ ?

Hi @mohamed - welcome to the forum.

We use a 3rd party provider for this data and we essentially combine the reference data and live occupancy data they provide. I’ve checked the data for a number of the car parks and we are providing the data as seen at source.

I’ll get a query raised with the supplier so that we can see what’s going on.

Thanks,
James

Thanks @briantist - yes https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Occupancy/CarPark and https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Occupancy/CarPark/{id}

Thanks @jamesevans, good to know it’s working fine from the API side, hopefully we understand if there is an issue with the source data.

Hi @jamesevans - just checking if there is any update regarding this issue?

Thanks,
Mohamed
