Often, buses and cars are seen as two separate modes of transportation, seemingly at odds with each other. Transport for London (TfL), the transit operator of the Tube, London Buses, and other transit in London, is planning to change that. TfL is piloting a technology which will install digital information boards on the rear of the buses. The digital information boards will display real-time traffic conditions, which the agency hopes will help improve journey reliability on London roads. Additionally, the data is publicly available through TfL's API website.
