London Travel Deluxe has now been merged into Tube Deluxe. It includes all features of Travel Deluxe and is also optimised for the iPad.
After getting to the point where I am happy enough with a tube application for the iPhone & iPod; it became more apparent a complete application is also needed for the Greater London bus network. Besides numerous requests, I have also learnt some people were just waiting for me to write something.
London Travel Deluxe (Formerly London Bus) covers the main daytime & nighttime network, containing nearly 600 detailed routes (599 to be exact). The application knows where more than 20,000 individual bus stops are and seamlessly integrates with Transport for London’s journey planner.
The London Bus network is probably one of the most complex and extensive public transport networks in the world. However the main design goal of this application was to bury such complexity and make something easy to use & understand. The application is not just restricted to the bus network either; it cover all modes of transport available in the TfL journey planner.
