  8. 19. Home  ›  Blogs  ›  Lisa Price's blog 1ST JULY 2010 Owing to overwhelming demand by apps that use the service, the London Underground feed has had to be temporarily suspended. We hope to restore the service as soon as possible but this may take some days. We will keep everyone informed of progress towards a resolution.
  9. 20. One feed could provide an entire picture broken down by line and lead car ID with destination & location text once ….. THU, 07/01/2010 12:41 I second the idea of having a call that returns the status of all the trains for feed's 4 and 5, just without the time to destinations.  FRI, 07/02/2010 09:45 Let's do this : - each train is an RSS/Atom feed. New events like &quot;train 1234 got in Paddington Station&quot; are the feed entries
  10. 21. Any news on when access might return? An update would be nice. What's happening TFL?  The service has been down for a week now - could we get an update? Over the two week mark of the service being down, any updates at all?
  11. 22. Hi - it seems these comments are being moderated so perhaps somebody reading this could comment on the status of this API.  We're only asking because we like it so much...... 20 TH July So this is it? In true British fashion - it was a resounding success so they turned it off...  genius!
  12. 23. TFL communication is seriously overdue on the APIs future availability… 26 TH AUGUST Why are you being so rude …Any news is better than no news. 3 RD SEPTEMBER
  13. 25. We are aware from all the comments... a lot of frustration in the developer community Discussions involve a number of stakeholders There is a cost associated with TFL Restored in a sustainable way... within the next 8 weeks... We will tweet and post
