Re: Bus Live Data Map

 On March 22, 2019, 3:57 p.m.

Here's something interesting (well, I find it interesting...).

The small icons seem to appear only on the Bus Map, and not on the equivalent map used in a S...

Cancelled bus services

I think I know the answer to this, but there's no harm asking...

Do you have anything in any data feed that tells you when a scheduled bus service has been ...

Today's a Bank Holiday, but...

... the Smart Panel bus departures are expecting a regular Monday service, instead of a Sunday service. Not sure if that's an issue with the Smart Panel set ...

Dead link

 On Aug. 12, 2018, 5:15 p.m.

At the top of every Smart Panel there are three organisational links. The link to, er, "Smart Cambridge" is dead and merely generates a 404 error message. ht...

Re: Possible new zones

 On Aug. 2, 2018, 11:21 p.m.

Not sure how beneficial the proposed new Barton zone would be. There's only one bus an hour in each direction on the Stagecoack 18, plus a daily handful of 7...

There's very little data in both current and proposed zoning for Hills Rd, because the overwhelming majority of services "divert" via Station Rd before retur...

I'm pretty sure there aren't any scheduled buses in the stretch of Queen's Road between Northampton St and West Rd.

Re: Combining bus stops into a single display

 On July 23, 2018, 4:20 p.m.

Good point. As it happens, the main city centre stops (excl the Bus Station) are the least problematic since they're already "numbered" (E2, D4, etc). One mi...

Re: Platform details for train departures

 On July 23, 2018, 4:11 p.m.

Personally I find being given advance info re platforms useful - even if it's sometimes overruled by local operational decisions. Knowing one has to hike ove...

Combining bus stops into a single display

 On July 23, 2018, 11:39 a.m.

I'm wondering if there's a way to combine multiple bus stops into a single "departures" display? Most commonly, this would be for inbound and outbound depart...

Platform details for train departures

 On July 23, 2018, 9:47 a.m.

Is the departing platform number not provided in the National Rail data feed? Or have you chosen not to display it? I can see there might be a "real estate" ...

Re: Bus Live Data Map

 On June 12, 2018, 11:51 a.m.

Ignore my final comment - it's unproven! The other apps and services I've encountered are all interested in "stop" data - not precise position of a vehicle (...

Re: Bus Live Data Map

And now for something completely different...

"Out of service" vehicles (sometimes?) show up on the map - but displaying "proper" service numbers. A moment ...

Re: Bus Live Data Map

The new interface is a definite improvement. However... the migration resulted in one key piece of functionality being "lost" (I don't doubt the data for it ...
