PiBus: London Bus Route with #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


Nice project from tenshu.net via raspberry pi pod:

The premise of this project is simple – my family lives in London, there’s a bus route that runs along our road, and we use it a lot to take the kids places.

The reality of using the bus is a little more complex – getting three kids ready to go out, is a nightmare and it’s not made any easier by checking a travel app on your phone to see how close the bus is.

I don’t think there is much I can do to make the preparation of the children any less manic, but I can certainly do something about the visibility of information about buses, mainly thanks to the excellent open APIs/data provided by Transport For London.

So, armed with their API, a Python 3 interpreter and a Raspberry Pi, I set out to make a little box for the kitchen wall which will show when the next 3 buses are due to arrive outside our house.
