A good transportation system is key to a healthy functioning city. The mobility of people into or through a city allows wealth to be dispersed, facilities accessed and areas to be regenerated. By making transport data open we have the opportunity to develop services and applications where transportation is a component, whether it be applications that integrate journey details into event listings or analysis based upon other open data sources.
Making transport data open is not without its challenges, the datasets can be huge, in realtime and complex. How do we make transport data available, robust and sustainable and what opportunities will it create?
