Challenge / Goal

Having access to open data about transport isn’t something common, and if so, sometimes it's dispersed in multiple platforms, which makes it difficult to have a good usage of the tools.

 

Solution

Trafiklab gathered in a single open data platform, information about transport in Sweden, and made some Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) available to everyone, so users may develop and share smartphone apps. Some APIs that can be found in the platform are:

  1. ResRobot - Trip Planner (public transport schedules in Sweden and their geographic location)
  2. Traffic State SL 2 / Trafikverket open API (traffic conditions)
  3. SL Real Time Information 4 (real time information on buses, subways, commuter trains, local trains and boats in Stockholm) and more.

The data is always provided free to third parties in order to foster creativity among the transport community in Sweden so that they can make useful applications for the ordinary user. The main goals of this good practice are:

  1. Make all traffic data in Sweden available
  2. Share APIs to foster transportation sector entrepreneurship
  3. Share to the wider population all the apps created
  4. Increase the usage of public transport

Citizen participation

The main stakeholders of this platform are Trafiklabs, Trafikverket, Storstockholms Lokaltrafik, Ostgotatrafiken and Rise Viktoria. Everyone is a beneficiary, the programmers, the users and the entities.
