TfL Live Bus Arrivals API
JUNE 2012 Transport
TfL Live bus arrivals (released in October 2011), is the largest real-time bus arrival information system in the world. It allows customers to view live arrival information for the 19,000 bus stops in London via web, mobile web and SMS.
Note: Using unsupported channels to source the data severely affects TFL's ability to support customers using the website during peak hours. It also contravenes the . TFL are unable to endorse or promote individual apps based on the feed, as part of this process.
To register for the API, and for the terms and conditions, visit the TfL Developers’ Area.
Apps developers can add this data to their travel tools:
- The 'Bus stops near you' location services can be refined using device-optimised applications
- Use the data to develop apps for visually impaired passengers
- Allow passengers to view the predicted arrival times (for the next 30 minutes) for a chosen bus route
- Venue owners could include their bus stop code with their listing details, allowing customers to easily find nearby bus stops
