@jamesevans please advise


This usually happens if you are being rate-limited. Are you using your app_key?

Resolved now. It was down for approx 3 hrs from ~22:39 - ~01:34.
TfL website and TfL go were not displaying arrival times either.

hi @jason

There was an incident on the iBus system that caused a loss of predictions in Countdown and the Unified API that occurred late Saturday night. This appears to be a network issue in the iBus infrastructure (although this is not my area of expertise).

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Many thanks,
