What you need to know to get started. Find guidance and support material tailored to your needs.


Who must publish open data?

All operators who run public bus services in England must publish their data from late 2020. Community bus operators are currently outside the scope of the new service (i.e. those with exemptions under Section 19 or Section 22 of the Local Government Act 1985).
