The 2014 TfL Business Plan says, "We will continue to make our real-time information feeds freely and openly available to developers and will add even more data sets to those we currently offer". What data sets do you plan to offer? When will they be released?

TfL offers over 30 data feeds and Application Programmable Interfaces (APIs) and many more data files through the TfL website to customers, stakeholders and developers. 

In 2015 this will be strengthened by the release of a new overall API which will allow new types of queries to be made across all forms of transport much more easily.

In December 2014, TfL launched a consultation on Transparency from which they expect to gain views about the demand for further specific data items which could be made available. An action plan for further data releases will then be put together.
