Leeds Travel

Leeds City Council jumped into the mashup business last week with the launch of Leeds Travel Info, mincing up realtime traffic data, the city’s Urban Traffic department and BBC Backstage feeds with Google Maps and <dramatic pause> plans to integrate CCTV footage. Cute!

Currently the map shows accidents, roadworks, events, parking availability, rail and bus station locations and even WhizzGo‘s car-on-demand locations!

It’s great to see a publically funded software project provide something dead useful and not cost bilions or turn into a project management quagmire 🙂 Well done Leeds…you should really be at Where 2.0 this week!


  1. it’s very good considering a local governent project – i would like to resize the window, and the rollover speech bubbles aren’t always visible. I’m not moaning tho!
