Today we have published advice on how to prepare data for the BODS and other service to ensure that it is correct for the Coronation of The King and The Queen Consort bank holiday on 8 May 2023.
The Bus services around bank holidays will often operate differently to normal weeks. The data for use in services such as the Department for Transport Bus Open Data Service (BODS), Traveline, journey planners, real time systems and mobile phone apps all need to be updated to reflect the changed operation.

This report specifically addresses one key customer challenge - the presentation of information about a journey for which a bus then does not appear at the customer location, often referred to as ghost buses.
It is an extract from the document RTIGT041 Accuracy and Quality of real Time Predictions and provides guidance on the causes of Ghost Buses.
