We are running with the DfT another series of workshops to explore different aspects of bus stops and data as part of the re-development work taking place on NaPTAN systems.

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 measurement of vehicle occupancy for buses in real time is not something that was carried out regularly or, was in widespread use in the UK until the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the course of 2020, significant work was carried out and progress made, by suppliers and bus operators to introduce passenger counting solutions and present the information to passengers.
Advice was provided in RTIGT039 Providing Vehicle Occupancy Data:- Data Interfaces in May 2020.
For those who are not normally involved in wider ITS initiatives we thought we should make you aware of this funding opportunity that your traffic signal colleagues have.
Traffic signal priority will be an important part of many of your bus partnerships and bus service improvement plans.
It would be an ideal opportunity, as part of the maintenance and upgrade work that this funding will enable, to make sure that as many of the traffic signals in your area are bus priority ready.
