Keeping people moving….

“We’re not in the business of making money.
We’re here to help passengers get from point A
to point B in London.”

Michael Gilbert, Chief Technology Officer,
Transport for London,


“Our vision was for
developers to access
our data and come up
with new and
innovative ways of
offering transport
information to the
travelling public.“

Let scientists be scientists….


Let scientists be scientists….

Use laptops &
desktop computers

Overwhelmed by
data

Finding analysis
ever more difficult;

sharing even
harder

Let scientists be scientists….
