Answer for TfL Data

Answered By: 
The Mayor

We have committed to making our open data freely available to third parties and developers to deliver new products, apps and services for our customers through our Open Data policy. This approach has created a community of more than 13,000 developers, who use our data to power more than 600 apps that are used by 42 per cent of Londoners. 

Upcoming planned data releases to support the Mayor's Transport Strategy include:

1)              Active Travel & Healthy Streets

a) Cycling infrastructure data to make it easier for developers to display Cycle Superhighways and Quietway routes in third party travel apps - planned for release in quarter 4 2017/18 and quarters 1 and 2 2018. 

b) Historic cycle hire trip data by week since September 2015, including start / end times, start / end docking stations - planned for release in quarter 4 2017/18.

2)              Accessible, Affordable and Safe Transport Network

a) Bus stops with Countdown screens and/or benches - planned for release in quarter 4 2017/18.

b) Station accessibility and step free access data at London Underground, London Overground and DLR stations - planned for release quarter 4 2017/18.

As well as the planned data releases set out here, we will continue to identify new datasets for release and will continue to work with our developer network and partners to improve transport for all Londoners.
