Are You Ready for Bus Open Data?

Bus Open Data is Here

With the Bus Open Data Service now live, and the government legally requiring operators to use the system by the end of this year, bus operators have been challenged to change how they work.

This change is likely to present both opportunities and risks to already stretched local authorities who could be left to pick up the pieces – while managing a damaging cycle of reducing faith in bus services – should operators fail to meet their requirements.

Manage Bus Service Data

Trapeze’s Novus solution is a simple, easy-to-use, web-based tool for managing and maintaining accurate bus service data.

Work with Local Bus Operators

It seems likely that in the future local authorities will take on the role of bus information agencies, either by creating data on behalf of operators or by providing shared systems through which operators are able to input, edit and access data. In this scenario, it will be essential that operators and authorities are able to access a single shared system – complete with all required access and security restrictions – and also that both registration and real-time schedule data can be processed via a single platform.

One System for All Data

Trapeze’s Novus platform is a single system for managing all bus service data – including schedule and real-time information, as well as all NaPTAN data.

We are currently working on an expansion to our Novus solution. This development, which is being undertaken in collaboration with a group of clients – including an authority and local bus operators – is intended to deliver a shared platform which outputs data in the required format, helping all parties to deliver on the Bus Services Act’s laudable ambitions. If you are interested in this development you can find out more by completing the form below.
