The UK government frees a bit more public transport data

The National Public Transport Data Repository, to be precise, as described here, in this rather extensive article in The Guardian. In fact, my favourite newspaper doesn’t just write about the release, but also heads a crowd-sourcing/crowd-crunching exercise to do something useful with data. Still a long way from things like Swisstrains, which uses timetable data to provide a map of pseudo-realtime train movements, but knowing where the bus stops are is a start (and using British timetable information to simulate real-time information would be a bad idea – you have to be Swiss for that sort of thing).
