London bus stops

The fact that all of London’s 19,500 bus stops are now numbered and can be located simply on any ‘smart’ phone may not be of interest to all of BTN’s business traveller readers.

For those that use the service it has become a force of habit and extremely handy.

Over 60 smart phone apps are now powered by TfL’s free API data feed.  Live bus arrival information has helped revolutionise bus travel in the capital, taking away the uncertainty about when the next bus is due and allowing passengers to time their arrival to perfection.
 
TfL research shows that around 13%  of all the 6.5m bus journeys each day start with a passenger checking the ‘Countdown’ service. 

London’s public transport operator says that it is looking for innovative ways to deliver live bus arrival information at a new range of public locations.  The technology uses existing IT infrastructure and display screens, making it ideal for doctors and hospital waiting rooms, schools or retail outlets.  It is already available in locations such as IKEA Wembley, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Borough of Greenwich offices in Eltham and Woolwich.  More sites are being considered.  

On BTN's wish list is all Underground and London's National Rail stations.  www.tfl.gov.uk/developers
