Transport for London (TfL) expanded the open Transport for London API last week to include real-time data on bus information. Bus information that is usually posted in bus shelters is now available via the API. TfL already uses the data feeds that will be available via the API for its internal SMS service and TfL website. Londoners have already benefited from available data via text message updates regarding bus schedules. Now, developers outside TfL gain access to the same data TfL texts to Londoners on a daily basis.
