Welcome to the latest installment from the Journey Planner team, with this week’s summary of our data updates. These include all forthcoming bus service and stop changes for timetables which are available on Journey Planner, as well as in the Journey Planner API.

As ever, if there are any points of interest you’d like to see added to Journey Planner, just let us know. You’ll find the email address at the bottom of this post.

This is a brief summary of this week’s new data highlights:

Timetables

This Saturday sees a number of minor timetable changes, and Route N97 changes operator to Tower Transit.

Further ahead, additional suggested Hail and Ride boarding points are introduced from Saturday 12 March and there are a small number of stop changes in Tottenham and New Addington. From Saturday 19 March, there will be a large increase in bus frequency on Route EL1.

Stops

Further redundant Hail & Ride boarding points have been removed from our systems, with a small number of coordinate and name changes and new stops introduced, all details inside.

Points of Interest

We are pleased to begin a new process of adding housing developments in London onto Journey Planner. These will gradually be added as soon as developments start to be constructed, enabling users to plan visits to show houses, and to assess the feasibility for commutes and other journeys.

In addition, the London locations where Tag Rugby is played are being added to the system in two phases. See the bottom of this post for all of this week’s new points of interest.

  1. Very useful having this each week. Have you considered uploading future changes information from Busnet? This would also tie in with the bus time schedules that are updated each week in the publications section.

  2. Thanks for your thoughts Sean – we produce our own service change information as this is synchronised with the availability of timetables, allowing third party developers to cross-check the information for accuracy, and we also look to phrase it in a more customer-friendly format. In addition, timetables which we have produced for special events are not mentioned in Busnet. Notably, the date of service changes does not always correspond to the availability of timetables or adjustments to them – eg changes to stop sequences sometimes follow at a later date even if they are already happending on the ground.
