Transport for the North’s Open Data Hub is helping to transform the customer information offer for public transport users across our region.

About the Open Data Hub

The Open Data Hub is an initiative of Phase Two of the Integrated and Smart Travel programme.

Working in collaboration with our Local Transport Authority partners, we want to make it easier for passengers to plan and stay up date about their journeys on public transport.

The Open Data Hub will provide a definitive, open-source of fares and disruption information for journey-planning app providers and other open data innovators to deliver to passengers.

The data will offer operators new insights about the public transport network. For passengers, it will help make journey planning an easier and more accessible experience, encouraging modal shift away from private cars.

The Open Data Hub is now live!

Using open data to power enhanced digital travel information

High-quality, accessible and trusted customer information is key to encouraging people to use our public transport network.

That’s why our Department for Transport funded Integrated and Smart Travel programme is facilitating new open data sets that will help make planning how to travel from A to B much easier for bus and light rail passengers across the North.

We are working with our Local Transport Authority partners, as well as leading journey planning app providers and other open-data driven mobility service providers  to advance this vision. This work will bring together best practice and innovation from across the sector, delivering joined-up digital travel solutions.

"Transport for the North’s open data initiatives offer an invaluable opportunity for Moovit. As a company with a global reach, we are always looking for this type of localised project to improve our app and help customers travel smarter. We’re excited to be collaborating with TfN as they begin to unlock the potential in quality open transit data for the benefit of passengers across North of England."

Samuel Sedpiazza, Director of Partnerships, Moovit

"Passenger works closely with transport operators within the North of England region to enable innovative customer experiences through data. We are excited to be at the forefront of Transport for the North’s ambitious Integrated and Smart Travel programme, harnessing the power of open data to improve public transport journeys for everyone."
