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. The Unified API is updated with new Journey Planner data up to five times a week. 

This week’s update features a number of changes to bus services.

Data Highlights this Week

Bus Routes

From Monday 15 May, Route 46 is revised to operate between St Bartholomew’s Hospital and Paddington, and Route 274 is revised to operate between Islington, Angel and Marble Arch until works are completed at the end of June

Stops

A large number of changes this week, mainly related to coordinate and name changes.

Points of Interest

As ever, we welcome any suggestions for new Points of Interest or categories to getthepoint@tfl.gov.uk

London Underground

River

Spring / Summer Timetables for all River Bus services (RB1 RB1X RB2 RB4 RB5 and RB6) are now available, as well as those for Thames River Services, Circular Cruise Westminster and Thames River Boats. Embankment Pier has now reopened.

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. We are also auditing stations outside London to confirm which step-free journeys are available.

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. We are progressing through on a borough-by-borough basis, and, so far, work has been completed for Barking & Dagenham and is underway for Barnet.
