Please note, the format and content of these datasets will change from June 2011 due to the introduction of a new measure of journey time reliability on the Strategic Road Network. Datasets in the current format will not be updated after this point but will, however, continue to be available.

National Public Transport Access Nodes (NaPTAN)"NaPTAN is a GB national system for uniquely identifying all the points of access to public transport in GB. It is a core component of the GB national transport information infrastructure and is used by a number of other UK standards and information systems. Every GB station, coach terminus, airport, ferry terminal, bus stop, etc., is allocated at least one identifier." Transport Direct 01/07/2010 04/01/2011 geospatial, airplane, airport, bus,
National Public Transport Gazetteer (NPTG)NPTG provides a topographic database of towns and settlements in the UK; it provides a common frame of reference for the National Public Access Nodes (NaPTAN) schema and other UK Public Transport Information schemas such as JourneyWeb. The appropriate naming and geospatial location of towns and places is vital for providing effective place and stop finding in modern on-line journey planners and other Passenger Information systems. Names are those that would be used by the people that reside or work in that place; the geospatial location is selected to optimise journey planning and other passenger information usage. The NPTG XML schema is used to distribute topographic data from the NPTG database to the local Administrative Areas who administer NaPTAN data, as well as other downstream Public Transport information systems such as journey planners.'

National Public Transport Data Repository (NPTDR)The NPTDR database contains a snapshot of every public transport journey in Great Britain for a selected week in October each year.

NPTDR is mainly used by local authorities and other organisations in the production of accessibility indicators via software tools such as Accession.'
