Public transport authority, Centro have said that they already have their data available to open data users.
“We make our data available in a number of ways. Data such as the NaPTAN bus stop location information is made available through data.gov.uk.”
The NaPTAN data “uniquely identifies” all points of access to public transport in Great Britain.
He further added:
By making our data available in this way Centro is maintaining the national standard for the provision of this type of information.”
Through an earlier guest post from Simon Whitehouse on Brum Transport, we were trying to look at the possibility of opening up transport data in the West Midlands.
This could enable developers to build more applications, websites and mobile services and get creative with data.
