Looking for a public transport service in the vicinity or within a specific region? Want to know which services are available at a stop and when they depart? The Vertrektijden API delivers that information for all public transport services in the Netherlands, including information about the occupancy of services, delays, disruptions and any scheduled or unscheduled changes in the regular services. Notices and comments of operators are included for each departure to inform travellers of relevant information they should know before departure.
The Vertrekwijzer delivers information about a predefined set of public transport stops. This is intended to be displayed on wall mounted screens at entrances or central areas in schools and offices. The Vertrektijden API delivers information about any stop and provides facilities to search for public services. The information about services is more elaborate and aimed to be used in Apps or interactive websites or by content providers that deliver regional information about public transport services.
The Vertrektijden API can be used in 2 different ways :

These types of stops are linked to each other and linking data can be delivered if requested.
After public transport stops have been found or selected, the details of departing services can be requested for any number of stops by listing their identification. In each request, a period is specified for which the departing services will be returned. Normally, this period will start at the moment the request is made, but it can be any moment on the current day and the next few days. Delays or disruptions will be included when they are known at the moment the request is received. The departure information is grouped and sorted chronologically per stop. For each departure, the following information is returned:
The departure information can be filtered for specified operators, lines or transport types, e.g. only bus services of a particular operator can be requested.
It is also possible to request arrival information of services. Optionally, information can be included of flexible public transport, e.g. BelBus.
