FEBRUARY 2010 Transport
Public access to mainline live departure and arrival board data is already available:

...in fact, a FOI request has already been made for bus stop location and associated information. It may be a year or so out of date, but I suspect this data is relatively static, and since the request succeeded once, I'm sure an updated copy could be obtained...

Unsure of the associated T&C's, but a quick look at the TfL bus info website shows that all stop and route information can be retrieved as JSON using the following url syntax:
Where x is the route number and y si the run number of the day
So for exampl:
Gives run 1 for route 73 in JSON notation - including all stops and polyline info for the route
Sat, 04/24/2010 23:30
returns JSON notation for all routes in London

Timetable info for any route can be obtained in html format from the following:
Where x is the bus number and y is the sopi id. The stop id can be obtained from:
as mentioned above
So for example:

What we're still missing is the lookup from all of the "stop FE at victoria" (or similar) to GPS. The Code from a Small Island FoI request gets us the general co-ordinates for a particular stop, but not the capability to do this lookup.
