Good news on open data in the Autumn Statement

In amongst all the headline economic news, there was a round of good news about opening up government data, detailed in a 13-page Cabinet Office document. It includes this on transport data:

Train and bus data – The Government will work with the transport industry to make available by April 2012 timetable and real-time train and bus information to support the development of innovative applications to improve passenger journeys…

Rail fares data – The Government will consult in early 2012, through the Fares and Ticketing Review, on providing open access to rail fares data, giving passengers and business better information and enabling them to make the most cost-effective travel choice.

Good news.
