巴士專營權條款規定
城巴及大嶼山巴士專營權意見書 (香港創意開放科技協會)
 
近年市民關注大眾公共運輸系統服務表現,例如專營巴士脫班問題等。同時近年全球發展開放數據 (Open Data),在公共巴士服務上,歐美以至台灣也有實例,利用開放數據來提供公共巴士服務資料給大眾。
 
為了有效讓社會公眾了解城巴有限公司 (城巴) 及新大嶼山巴士有限公司 (大嶼山巴士) 的服務情況,我們要求運輸署在延續城巴及大嶼山巴士條款上,必需在新專營權開始前加入提供以下開放數據,讓公眾自由查詢和使用。
 
1. 各路線每天的排班數據。
2. 各路線班次從巴士總站離站時間的實時開放數據。
3. 各路線班次到達終點站時間的實時開放數據。
4. 提供 API (Application Programming Interface) 讓開發者以程式存取所有開放數據。
 
並在新專營權開始後兩年內提供:

1. 加入到達各站時間的實時開放數據。
 
以上開放數據的定義為:
 
1. 可以容易在互聯網上取得。
2. 令用家安心的合法授權條款。
3. 數據內容使用公開標準 (例如 json、XML 等格式)。
 
意見提交者:
 
1. Dr. Haggen So, President, 香港創意開放科技協會有限公司 Hong Kong Creative Open Technology Association Limited
2. Mr. Sammy Fung, President, Open Source Hong Kong。
