Providing Vehicle Occupancy Data - Data Interfaces

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.

The paper is available to download now.


 DfT Bus Open Data Service TransXChange Public Transport Information Profile

The aim of this profile is to specify a consistent use of elements and a consistent way of writing TXC that will be used within the DfT Bus Open Data Service.

The profile guide is available for download and use now.



 Exchange of Disruption Information using SIRI-SX

Working with Transport for the North we have developed a guidance document on implementing SIRI SX and its use in sharing disruption data between systems. The document includes use cases and sample XML.

The document can be found in the documents section of this site.




What is RTIG?

RTIG was established in 2000 to provide a focus for all those involved in UK bus RTI. We now have a comprehensive remit to cover the effective and efficient use of technology in the interests of passenger transport users, operators and sponsors.

RTIG is a trade body for public transport technology stakeholders. 

Our members are local authorities, bus operators, system suppliers and consultants.
RTIG works on behalf of its members and the wider industry, delivering benefit though:

  • An extensive and continuously evolving technical library
  • practice guidelines to help members achieve successful implementation
  • Working with Governments to help policymakers stay informed on real-world issues
  • Regular workshops, enabling members to discuss concerns and share experiences
  • Using our national buying power to secure excellent value framework contracts
  • Support to the development of standards, at UK and European levels.
