In September 2018 we enabled access to the 'SmartCambridge API', giving programmatic access to information maintained by the Smart Cambridge project. Currently this includes:

  • Air Quality data from a selection of sensors deployed around Cambridge between June 2016 and February 2017.
  • Car Parking data showing the occupancy of Cambridge City Centre and Park and Ride car parks from 2017 onward.
  • Traffic Speed data for a number of roads within Cambridge based on bus position reports from October 2017 onward.
  • API access to bus transport data from the National Public Transport Access Nodes (NaPTAN) and Traveline National Dataset (TNDS) resources.

There's some general information about using the API (also linked from the SmartCambridge home page), and a reference page documenting the API endpoints..

This is a first stab at providing an API and we'd welcome comments and suggestions for how it could be improved. We also encourage you to ask questions about it here and we'll do our best to answer them.
