Countdown returning stop points with missing geolocation


#1

Hi,

The Countdown feed seems to be returning a couple of stop points with the latitude and longitude being set to 0.
This seems to be affecting the following stop points (StopPointName, StopCode2(Naptan code)):

  • Sutton Bus Garage, 490013063E2
  • Pont Street, 490011097S
  • Furzeground Way, 490012825W
  • Hail & Ride Elmcroft Avenue, 490019462E

Kind regard,

Hi Denis,

We’ve asked the Countdown team to look into the lack of geolocation for these.

Our Unified API does have the lat-long for the stops though, example call below:

Thanks,

Hi James,

I’ve noticed that all of the stops mentioned above have been corrected except Sutton Bus Garage. Is this still a work in progress?

Hi Denis,

We’ve chased for some progress with London Buses on this.

We’ll let you know when we hear back re: Sutton Bus Garage.

Thanks,
James
