Platform data by station

Hello

Am I missing anyway of getting platform details for tube stations from the API? I can only see it appearing under an arrival prediction, for that prediction specifically. I want to create a data set of stations and their platforms though (number and name).

Thanks!

Are you just after the platform number counts (almost all are “2”) for a specific type of StopPoint or do you want more detail?

Does this not give you what you want?

https://api.tfl.gov.uk/TrackerNet/PredictionDetailed/D/TGR

I mean this is a prediction, but it does give you all the platforms, whether there are trains around or not.

D/TGR means District line/Turnham Green - I’m not sure how to get the full list of station abbreviations :slight_smile:

Number and direction.

At the moment the best I can come up with is looping through https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Line/central/Arrivals for example and parsing the platformName field. That won’t capture them all thought because if nothing is expected then the platform won’t be listed.

@netstruggler idea of looping through all the stations via https://api.tfl.gov.uk/TrackerNet/PredictionDetailed/C/LYS will get them all but it’s another API and another data set of station codes.

:thinking:

@s230

All the codes are here…

Which goes a whole heap of three letter codes to chuck at https://api.tfl.gov.uk/TrackerNet/PredictionDetailed//
