Welcome to the latest instalment from the Journey Planner team, designed to keep you up to date with new timetables, stops and points of interest which have been added to the system and timetable data sources over the past week.

Step-free Access

To complement improvements to the website interface and the growing demand for improved accessibility information within Journey Planner and API, we have started a comprehensive programme to audit and improve National Rail step-free access information for stations within London and the South East. The process is well underway, and allows planning of “step-free to platform” journeys using National Rail, Overground and TfL Rail within London, and to a wide number of stations within Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Oxfordshire.Surrey and Sussex. Includes train -bus connections across London and the South East, unlocking a large number of through multi-modal accessible journeys

95% of bus stops in London are accessible to wheelchair users, however, we are now starting a project which labels the small number of inaccessible bus stops and removes them from Journey Planner and API solutions when “Full step-free access” is selected.
