TfL adds Night Tube data to open-data resource

Free data feed makes real-time travel information openly available to app developers

In advance of the Night Tube launching on the Central and Victoria line on Friday 19 August, Transport for London (TfL) has updated its extensive open data Application Program Interface (API) so customers who use travel apps can start to plan their Night Tube journeys.

The data, available free of charge, forms part of TfL’s commitment to make real-time travel information openly available to help developers create better products and services for customers.

 

Additional data

The API now contains the planned journey timetables for Night Tube services on the Central and Victoria lines on Friday and Saturday nights. As other Tube lines start running Night Tube services, the API will also be updated to include these services too.

Night Tube service information will also be available on TfL’s in-station digital customer information boards and through the journey planner on the TfL website, which itself is accessible in a convenient form through any device.

The API also contains live travel information on buses, river bus services and Trams, accessibility and car park information for all TfL stations and live travel information on the status of roads. More than 8,500 developers have registered to access our free open data, helping to power more than 500 travel apps. Following this latest release to the API, TfL is identifying further data feeds, which could help customers with their journeys.

Phil Young, head of online at TfL said: “London is a 24-hour city and millions of Londoners use apps powered by our open data to check the Tube, find a bus or see how the roads are running. By making information about the Night Tube services easy for customers and developers to access, we hope to make it easier for everyone to enjoy all that London has to offer and support the thousands of Londoners who have to travel to or from work during the night.”
