I note that although the service has been called “London Trams” for ages, the Tube, Overground, Elizabeth line, DLR & Tram status updates - Transport for London shows “London Tramlink”
This appears on the API so my front-end has this same inconstancy (https://api.tfl.gov.uk/line/mode/tube,overground,dlr,elizabeth-line,tram/status)
https://content.tfl.gov.uk/london-trams-tram-graphic-standard-cr4000-issue-04.pdf suggest that the correct name is “Trams” but the singular appears on the tfl.gov.uk website.
hi @briantist - I’ve asked the question of the LUCC who create the messaging you see here.
I’ll let you know once I have a response.
I’m pleased to report that the text in the message has changed to “LONDON TRAMS”.
However, I think that TfL website Tube, Overground, Elizabeth line, DLR & Tram status updates - Transport for London and the API (see above) are using the singular “Tram”!!!
The current printed tube map, if this is any help has gone with “London Trams”
Hi, just to clarify: we haven’t made any changes. Rather, the difference is because this particular message was added by a different team (not the LUCC) in a different system. So in the future you may still see messages starting with “London Tramlink” (if they were entered by the LUCC).
We recognise that there is a discrepancy here, so it’s something we’re discussing internally.
That’s more-or-less what I thought had happened.
We’re testing out a change to the config at the moment in our dev environments. Will update further here.
