Where is the stop name info? e.g. "stop FE at Victoria". This looks like the same data we'd already acquired under FoI ( and discussions at Google Maps appears to have this data, so it's out there, and I'd assume you'd have it. When do we get it?

Why does the user have to provide a Company name ,Address, Address, Town/city, Postcode before they can use the feed? Why put unnecessary hurdles in front of any developer who wants to use the data? Why assume that any developer will have a company? etc, etc

Something I put together to see what the data might be used for:


It shows bus routes for a stop, lets you change direction (and finds the nearest stop in the other direction). It will probably have real time information -when TfL get around to releasing it :-)
