Irish National Transport Authority updates an important API
On 2 January 2019, the National Transport Authority in Ireland provided an update on the available of the Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) API to the Irish open data portal.
The RTPI system helps passengers to plan more efficient trips by providing them with up-to-date information on the departure and arrival times, as well as service disruptions and delays, on different modes of transport ranging from trains to buses. RTPI predicts times based on Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) data and by incorporating historic averages and schedule deviations.
For more information, read the Data Gov IE's article about the update of availability of the RTPI API and the schedule of proposed times about when the open source real-time API will be released in January 2019.
