Event description


Wednesday 6 December
ODI Leeds, Leeds

The Department for Transport (DfT) in collaboration with ODI Leeds is holding workshops, in three locations in England, in November and December 2017.

These workshops will give local authorities, bus operators, transport data providers, and other interested stakeholders an opportunity to discuss the open data provisions in the Bus Services Act 2017.

Who should attend a workshop?

DfT is developing a robust open data platform/policy that will deliver the best outcomes for passengers. These workshops will be of interest to:

  • Local authorities

  • Bus operators – including small-medium sized operators

  • Transport data providers and users

  • Digital developers – including journey planner providers

  • Organisations representing bus passengers and the bus industry

  • Transport academics

Why attend?

DfT is keen to hear from you about how bus open data could work in practice and for users to shape next steps of the legislative framework i.e. the Bus Services Act (2017).

Although we will do our best to allow everyone an opportunity to attend, places are limited so we advise early sign up.

We look forward to seeing you!
