Transport for London have helped London to lead the way in open data by releasing large volumes of real-time data and engaging developers to deliver and innovate using open data.
Over 5,000 developers have registered for their open data, consisting of around 30 feeds and APIs focussed on enabling provision of high-quality travel applications, tools and services. Developers have created hundreds of applications, reaching millions of active users.
Their commitment to open data comes from a belief that it delivers economic benefit. Open data has facilitated the development of technology enterprises, small and medium businesses, generating employment and wealth for London and beyond.
It has also delivered innovation by having thousands of developers working on designing and building applications, services and tools with their data and APIs.
