The London Datastore contains a data set entitled "TfL Bus Stop Locations and Routes". Are you able to update that dataset to show which buses serve each bus stop, which bus stops are on night bus routes & what stops have countdown installed?

The bus stop location and route information provided via London Datastore is designed for developers of smart phone and tablet applications to provide next-arrival bus information on stops. It cannot be integrated with lists of data from other systems such as those that hold locations of Countdown signs. Data on which routes serve stops including night routes can be provided directly from the TfL link below:

There are a number of stand-alone reports as opposed to live data sets available from TfL. This information can be provided on request and TfL would be happy to help further with this enquiry.
