Dear Transport for London,

You have previously released timetable data at http://timetables.data.tfl.gov.uk/, however this site hasn't been updated for a number of months and the information is not current.

Could you:

1. Make available a copy of the current WTT/TTN for each of the current working timetables in the Common User Format
2. Indicate whether you have an intention to update http://timetables.data.tfl.gov.uk/ in the future for subsequent changes to the timetable
3. Advise whether you have an existing business process to make electronic version of the WTT/TTNs (ideally in machine-readable format) available to third parties in advance of a timetable change, and who an interested party should contact to receive updated information

Yours faithfully,

Peter Hicks

Dear Mr Hicks

 

The response below was sent on 7 February, but for some reason has not
uploaded on to the What Do They Know site.

 

I have tried sending it again today, but again is has not appeared – I
assume that the attachments were too large, but we have not been advised
by What Do They Know that there was a problem.

 

A copy of our response, including the requested files, has been published
on our website and can be viewed here:
