London today is widely recognised for its global flagship bus network – but it didn’t appear overnight, or without huge effort, vision and collaboration. Together with Transport for London (TfL) we have been on an incredible journey, resulting in iBus, iTram & iBoat. This page reflects on our 15 years of world-leading technology excellence.
Today, iBus is a global flagship solution, serving London’s population with complete and accurate information at all times.

“We’re responsible for keeping London moving.”
Simon does a deep dive into congestion charging – its history, how it works in London, and how it helps fund TfL. He also discusses why TfL has gone completely cashless.
Watch our recent webinar featuring TfL's Simon Reed talk about how he has become a "data scientist", using innovative technology to cater for the new reality, including supporting operational staff, right-sizing their operations, and modifying services to reflect demand. He will also share the five strategies that TfL is planning for in long-term recovery.
Hear TfL's Success
“iBus is seen as one of the most accurate real-time information systems anywhere in the world."
- Simon Reed, Head of Technology & Data, TfL
“iTram will bring London Trams in line with existing TfL performance operational practices already used by London Buses and River Boats, providing commonality of service management. In addition the system will improve London Trams performance data reporting, analysis and management ability by capturing accurate and reliable real-time performance data linked to tram geographic location."

Charting the Road to Success
15 years ago TfL and Trapeze began the iBus journey: one that would take us from a simple line diagram to a truly global flagship bus network. This site charts our shared journey, recalling some key moments, and sets out a plan for continued success in the future.

"This data analysis through the use of BI will permit identification of performance trends contributing to operational benefits, allowing measures to be taken to address these trends and to drive operational enhancement. The on-board tram system provides in-cab driver alert of the network Permanent Speed Restriction (PSRs) signs changes along with over-speed and violations alerts. This will increase driver hazard awareness and enhance day to day operational safety. As part of future of the iTram project (Phase 2), the integration into the next stop displays on both trams and platforms will give London Trams the added ability to inform passengers on service updates such as delays, tourist attractions/places of interest and travel connections to buses and trains.”
