What's this?

Citymapper is powered by open data. We continue to encourage all transport operators to make their data freely available to enable innovation and accessibility.

We are releasing routes, stop locations and schedules in GTFS format and real-time arrival predictions in GTFS-RT format for our Smartbus routes ("Smartbus Data").


This Smartbus Data is released under the Open Data Commons Public Domain Dedication and Licence. For the avoidance of doubt, for the purposes of this license, Citymapper Limited is the Rightsholder and only the Smartbus Data is the Work, and as set out in the license, no permission is granted for any use to be made of any trade mark owned by Citymapper Limited.

The Citymapper Smartbus route icon is available in SVG format.

For the sole purpose of identifying or representing Citymapper Smartbus routes in your software using our Smartbus Data, we grant you a royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable license, with no right to sub-license, to use this Citymapper Smartbus route icon. You do not acquire any proprietary rights to use this icon as a result of this license, and you must not alter or amend the icon in any way except to change the image format and dimensions.
