Hi,

I have just been supplied some local data from a council, I have been given two files - the usual Bus file but i have also been given a REF file, does anyone know what this is?

Thanks,

Rob

I believe the REF file contains all the bus stop names used within the Bus file. I have used a Bus file but didn't intially use the REF file, until it was obvious that all the stops imported had no names. I re-imported the bus file and the REF file and all the stop names were included. If you use the overwrite function when importing the REF file it does overwrite any names of existing stops in your network.

Hope that helps,

Rowley

From what i have seen of public authority data the REF file usually contains only the stops for that area, this needs to be imported together with the Bus data and select append. Alternatively you can import the REF file first and then import the BUS file.

Regards,

Dan

Hello

When is the latest PT data available? And who exactly supplies it?

We currently have October 2008 data, and I understand this is the most up-to-date data at present.

The 2009 data is being digitised at the moment, last year the 2008 data was released in March 2009. I would think that a similar timescale will be applicable for the new data.

We can supply this data for you, this is done through Department for Transport and will cost you the same as it would if you purchased it direct.
