Circulation and Sharing Platform Common API [Public transportation operation information services] Provides directly real-time operation information to the device of public transportation users [Vulnerable transportation user support information services] Provides movement support services by voice to the visually impaired whom are vulnerable transportation users [Next-generation traffic support information services] Provides information services such as facilities information in accordance with the location of users in the station Information (facility name, location, usage status, etc.) of station terminal facilities (ticket vending machines, ticket windows, kiosks, etc.) Development of data standards System construction and verification Verification of the applicability of information circulation and sharing platform through providing various information services, visualization of the benefits of open data FY2012 demonstration experiments: Public transportation-related information (Overview) If various data held by multiple public transportation agencies such as railways and buses become available for coordination and utilization across operators, it enables providing new services such as transfer information of multiple lines that takes into account real-time delays, movement support information of vulnerable transportation users (the elderly, the disabled, etc.) and the like, contributing to the resolution of issues in the public transportation area in urban regions. For this reason, a demonstration was conducted to show that it was possible to provide various information services (public transportation operation information services, vulnerable transportation users support information services, next-generation transportation support information services) by distributing and coordinating data in such areas along with developing and demonstrating data standards of the public transportation area. Information on operation of railways (Traveling location, delay information, cancel information, cause information of delays and cancellation, etc.) Information on operation of buses (Traveling location, delay information, cancel information, cause information of delays and cancellation, etc.) Implementing Body: Yokosuka Telecom Research Park, Inc. Coordinating Bodies: JR East, Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation, Tokyo Metro Co., Ltd. (Information on operation of JR Yamanote Line, Tokyo Metropolitan Buses, Tokyo Station facility information, etc.) [Data dealt in the demonstrations (examples)] 1
Public transportation information As of 9:51 pm Transit information Information on bus and train positions are estimates made by this system. Train in service North exit, Shimbashi Station – Nishi-Shimbashi 1 chome Due to the effects of a train inspection at Tachikawa Station, there is a partial delay in Chuo Line express trains traveling into and out of Tokyo. Chuo Line express train Kokoshiru Assistant Depart at 11:30 18 minutes until departure. Walk through Bay Road for approximately 15 minutes and head toward the Yaesu exit.

FY2012 demonstration experiments: Public transportation-related (Applications ) In addition to the three applications (built by a subcontractor) on the previous page, a subcontractor conducted an open recruitment to build applications (open recruitment period: JAN 29 to FEB 15). As a result, 16 applications went live only approximately three weeks after placing the order. OpenData + RailMaping Visualization of information on operation of Yamanote Line Electronic compass that guides to a designated facility in Tokyo Station Shows station status from the route map Torebasa! Application that collects trains, buses, stations and bus stops near where the current location of the user like a game SuggestingSensor Application that shows Tokyo Station environment on a proposal basis TokyoStationNavi Application that shows facilities around the NFCtags installed in Tokyo Station by touching them Station fix application Application that places improvement requests on the station [Application examples built through open recruitment] 3 HyperTransfer Transfer guide that takes into account delay information [Achievements and Issues] Based on the common API specification, succeeded in building and implementing APIs and data standards (vocabulary, etc.) in the public transportation area, and verified their effectiveness. When the building of applications that utilize public transportation-related data was openly recruited, various bodies including individuals made proposals. 16 applications were actually built in a short time period of three weeks from the order placement, demonstrating the significance of open data. While JR East and Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation and the like participated in the demonstration experiment, it is necessary to continue encouraging open data of a wide variety of public transportation operators including private railways in view of enhancing the convenience of users in the future.
