Timetables of major government operated (or commissioned) national-level public transport services (specifically bus and train). The focus here is on national level services (not those which operate only at a municipal or city level and which are not controlled or regulated by the national government). A 'yes' in any question will refer to both types of transport. However, if there is no national level service operated or regulated by the government for a given type of transport (for instance busses), then this type is ignored in this data category. Data submitted in this category should meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Time of operating
  • Time of leaving first station and arriving to the last station
  • Updated at least once a year

Includes bus, steam train, electric tram and horse tram timetables in PDF.

Requested CSV/XLS export but apparently issues with legacy system, resources, etc. Recently more positive engagement, so hopeful a shift to GTFS and mobile app. Most routes have already been independently handcoded into GTFS format by the local open data community to accelerate adoption.

Confirmed that footer on public transport content is outdated and incorrectly links to outdated terms and conditions not the new IM OGL based on the UK OGL.
