Analyse Bus Open Data (ABOD) is a new extension service to the Bus Open Data Service (BODS), that provides free-to-access reporting and analytics to operators and authorities nationally.
The service is available now, providing a dashboard overview, feed monitoring, and on-time performance analyses. Further features will also be added later in the year to provide geography-based views of network performance, along with other insights.
The Department for Transport have now updated the Bus Open Data implementation guide which offers practical advice to bus operators and local transport authorities to meet the Public Service Vehicle Open Data Regulations.
The guide now includes AVL and Fares information.

The SIRI VM profile guidance for providing location data to the BODS service has been published as a webpage:
Version 1.1 of the BODS Public Transport Information Profile for TransXChange has been released.
It is available from the PTIC website. In due course it will be available from an official DfT location.
A version showing changes between v1 and v1.1 is available:
Version 1 of the BODS Public Transport Information Profile for TransXChange has been released.
There is no meaningful difference to the previous version that was circulated at the end of April.
The only change is the removal of draft and uprating within the document to version 1. This has been done because of concerns that it should not be developed against because it was ‘draft’.
The statutory instrument for the Bus Open Data programme was recently formally made on 16th July and is now law.
Following the formal making we have updated it to reflect the latest understanding of requirements.
It covers a load of dates and data formats so we've produced a quick summary for you.
The DATA4PT EU project aims to advance data-sharing practices in the public transport sector by supporting the development of data exchange standards and models, to fulfil the needs of multimodal travel information service providers. More info on the official WEB site.
DfT recently published the draft statutory instrument for the Bus Open Data programme. it covers a load of dates and data formats so we've produced a quick summary for you: (this has been updated to include small operator hosting levels)
There is a lot of interest in vehicle loading and capacity so we have put together a short paper on the data exchange formats that exist now to enable you to provide vehicle occupancy data.
We are releasing this as a public document, for free, rather than just to members because of the interest in this topic in the wider transport community as we try to support the rebuilding of confidence in public transport following the COVID pandemic.
