Consultation description

The Department for Transport is seeking views on ways to improve information for bus passengers through the Bus Services Act 2017 and open data legislation.

Our proposed approach would require operators and local authorities to publish open data digitally for buses in England (outside London). We want to make it easier for bus passengers to plan their journeys through access to routes and timetables data, fares and tickets data, and real time information.

This ‘Bus open data: case for change’ document sets out the case for bus open data.

We also want to hear your views on our accessible information proposals in a separate consultation.
