National PTI the company

In 1999 Government established a multi-modal National Public Transport Information Service, branded ‘traveline’.  National Public Transport Information Ltd (originally South West PTI), was the not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, set up by local authorities and major public transport operators in the south west of England to implement and operate traveline across the wider south west (including Hampshire & the Solent area and now Oxfordshire).

We update our data at least weekly and pride ourselves in providing comprehensive, unbiased and accurate public transport journey information. This gives passengers the full picture when planning their journeys encouraging use of public transport.

We continue to provide data to power the traveline enquiry service via website, mobile apps and call centre.  Our data is also used by over 500 third party apps and websites, from small independent developers to BusChecker and Google.  We produce a GB-wide mapping base for our partners, based on the Open Street Mapping system. Our database is used by local authorities and operators to power real-time information systems, provide publicity material such as bus stop timetable information and provide exports to mapping, GIS and accessibility planning systems.  We also host IT systems and hold contracts used by our partners.
