Dear Mr Punnett
Thank you for contacting Auckland Transport on 7 December 2017 requesting
the following information:
§ A description of what data you have that records bus locations over the
past year, including data generated by the GPS trackers used to power your
§ A description of what data you have that records the times at which
buses arrived at their scheduled stops generated over the past year.
Our Subject Matter Expert advises the following:
AT has a very comprehensive data set on the movement of our scheduled
buses. In theory, and mostly in practice, every bus that runs a scheduled
trip is tracked by GPS, specifically at the time it enters and exits bus
There are over 6000 bus stops in Auckland. On a weekday we run around
11000 bus trips. So there is a very large data set for this.
All of this tracking in real time provides data to the real time boards
in the form of a prediction.
The data is stored in our data warehouse and can be accessed over a period
We trust that this information is of use to you. Should you require data
relating to the above, please do not hesitate to contact us with specific
parameters. We will do our best to assist you.
