Open API Real-Time Train Data

The Swedish Transport Administration are actively seeking to attract outside innovators to develop new and exciting digital services to inform travellers. One step towards this vision is to publish available information about traffic via an Open API that developers can base their services upon.

Viktoria Swedish ICT has worked tightly with Swedish Transport Administration since early 2012 to understand motivations and how these can be transformed into incentives to ensure developer adoption and speed-to-market of new services. During 2013 a more permanent solution has been deployed to http://api.trafikinfo.trafikverket.se/ and as a first set of information, real-time data about train has been published. Viktoria Swedish ICT has assisted in the design of the APIs and are reponsible for a thorough evaluation of the APIs.
