The open data interface of Föli timetables
All Föli timetable information is now available via open API at data.foli.fi. The interface provides access to both static and real-time information about the running of Turku Region Public Transport’s buses.
The interface is public in principle, and can be used freely with no need to register. However, use of the interface must be relevant and appropriate, and applications using the interface must aim to use the resources provided cost-effectively, avoiding placing an unnecessary load on the back-end system.
There are three data sources available via the interface :
- GTFS features static information content which is less variable, concerning stops, lines and the planned timetables.
- SIRI features real-time information about the vehicles’ movement, as well as calculated predicted information about actual timetables.
- CITYBIKE features information about the availability of bikes in the citybike stations in Turku.
