It was announced last week that over the course of the last six months, more than 2,000 new developers have signed up for access to our open data, making a total of around 8,200 developers now registered for TfL’s Unified API.
Almost 500 apps are now being directly powered by our open data, helping Londoners plan their journeys with real-time information about our public transport and road networks.
As Phil Young, Head of TfL Online explains:
“Across London, millions of people use apps powered by our open data to check the Tube, find a bus or see how the roads are running.
This same data powers our website, allowing customers to choose between using tfl.gov.uk or simply downloading apps which are directly powered by us. We’re committed to making our information freely available to help stimulate new products and services.”
Following our Traffic Data Hack Day hosted by Amazon Web Services earlier this month, join us for this week’s AWS Loft event on Thursday 21 April at 6:30PM to find out more about our open data and how developers can work with it.
