15 Years of Partnership

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.

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."
