RIP Transport Direct

Today data is described as ‘King’, well for the transport industry, the king has left the building. The governments Transport Direct service which provided free transport data for journeys is no longer available.

The removal of the service affects their website, API and bulk upload service. And may leave a number of transport journey planners defunct without the appropriate data. But it’s not all gloom and doom. There is a solution.

myPTP has removed Transport Direct’s data and made alternative arrangements. The online travel planning tool can still deliver public transport information for any journey, as-well-as walking, cycling, car-sharing and in some cases park and ride. And, these new arrangements have also opened up new avenues for myPTP development to further improve the usability of the software.
