Other data requests

  • New Zealand Bus has been unable to provide data.
  • We have approached Google, who have chosen not to respond to our requests for help. We assume this is because we are open sourcing our data and solutions. You will find API information for other traffic services above, we suggest strongly you use those rather than any Google data.
  • Sensing hardware that can be utilised prior or during the weekend.
