    Hi Malcolm

    Is there any news about next buses for London.



  4. Malcolm Barclay says:

    Hi Anita,

    Sorry no news or timeframes as yet. TfL are working on real-time bus info for much of Greater London, but no timeframes or details of possible data feeds yet.

    I can’t imagine you don’t already know about it – but care to comment on how hard it will be for you to integrate the live bus status info available through



  6. Malcolm Barclay says:

    Indeed, taking a very close look at this & seeing if technically feasible. Unfortunately TfL have no official API for this that I’m aware of, but there are other ways.

    TFL’s countdown page uses ajax calls, so I’ve whacked a little front end up for it (completely unofficial and unsupported, of course..)

    No doubt you can make it muuuuch nicer ;)
