SWPTI the company

In 1999 Government established a multi-modal National Public Transport Information Service, branded ‘traveline’.  South West Public Transport Information Ltd, or SWPTI, is the not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, set up by local authorities and major public transport operators in the south west of England to implement and operate traveline across the wider SW (including Hampshire & the Solent area). 

We update our data each week and pride ourselves in providing comprehensive, unbiased and accurate public transport journey information. This enables passengers to plan and execute their journeys seamlessly, increasing public transport patronage.

We continue to provide data to power the traveline enquiry service via website, mobile apps and call centre, with data used by over 500 third party apps and websites to provide public transport information. We produce a GB-wide mapping base for our partners, based on the Open Street Mapping system. Our database is also used by local authorities and some operators to power real-time information systems, provide publicity material such as bus stop timetable information and provide exports to mapping, GIS and Accession systems. 

Over the past few years, SWPTI has worked closely with other traveline regions to deliver our service. We host IT systems and hold contracts used by our partners.
