Passengers on London Tramlink are now able to access live service information at the touch of a button following the release of up-to-the-minute data both through TfL’s website and on Electronic Service Update Boards across other parts of the TfL network. As reported a few weeks ago this data is also available for free to app developers and is all part of TfL’s wider commitment to make the information it holds openly available to help Londoners and visitors get around.
Rory O’Neill, TfL’s Director of Trams, said: “The Tram network is a vital transport link in south London and much has been done to improve it, including introducing extra services to help meet growing demand. Making live service information easily available to our customers will make using the tram network even easier, and shows how we’re harnessing technology to give people better journeys.”
As mentioned in the introduction to this article you can now log on to the TfL website at http://www.tfl.gov.uk and access information of tram departures from each stop. An example of this is Mitcham – https://tfl.gov.uk/tram/stop/940GZZCRMCH/mitcham-tram-stop.
