An efficient transportation system that allows people to move around easily for work and leisure is an essential part of today's modern city. Being able to make decisions on how we travel based on convenience, cost and accessibility especially if information is updated in real time, should allow a more enlightened traveling public.

Open data offers a chance to create a more intelligent environment for making travel decisions. Traditionally the data needed to create applications and services to enable these decisions would be closed due to restrictive licensing, technological difficulties or confused policy decisions, but this is starting to change.

This months edition of Open Data Manchester brings together a host of transport based open data initiatives.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) will be deliver an update as to the progress that they are making with open data now that the Local Sustainable Transport Fund activity is underway.

Rockshore who've created the Network Rail APIs will talk about the progress and uptake of these and answer questions regarding their use.

FutureEverything - Will talk about a new set of APIs that allow people to access up to data scheduling, arrivals and departure information and other related data from their CitySDK programme

So if you are transportista developing the next generation of transport services, data wrangler trying to understand the complexities of our transit system or just someone who would like to get from A to B that little bit easier, this edition is for you.

As always there will be opportunity to present projects, ask questions and network.
