Access to Real-time Passenger Information (RTPI)  

Back to News, Blogs & Events

 

Unfortunately, access to Real-time Passenger Information (RTPI) via our Dublinked Open Data Portal has been down over the past number of weeks. Please find below a message from the National Transport Authority regarding this issue and the work taking place to rectify. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will continue to update as more information becomes available.

Message from the National Transport Authority

 

Please find a schedule of proposed times when the open source Real Time API will be made available in January 2019. I can confirm that the API BI stats are showing tens of thousands of searches per hour throughout the night (00.30 – 05.00) when no public transport services or limited services are running. The evidence from the stats potentially points towards Real Time data search requests being cashed and then resent to 3rd party customers.

 

API fair usage schedule for January

 

Action / API traffic Date/Time
Switch ON Wednesday 2nd January 2:00 pm
Switch OFF Friday 4th January 4:30pm

GTFS R

The current API environment is no longer able to cope with the sheer volume of requests over a 24 hour period and that is why the NTA is building a new GTFS R environment to be scalable to future proof the open source data set.

This new GTFS R project is currently being developed by the NTA and I would hope to be able to confirm a proposed go live date over the coming weeks.

 

Fair Usage

Unfortunately due to excessive repeat Real Time searches the open source API will have limited access until the new scalable GTFS R environment has been deployed in early 2019.
