Using the module

Get your timepointcode

This module can show one or more bus stops in your neighbourhood using timepoint code. A timepoint code is a stop on e.g. a bus or metro line. (more docs on: )

  1. Use: in a browser to find your line in all lines. (search the result for your line by city or line number). First result in the resulting JSON e.g was ARR_28167_2.

  2. Use:[lineid] in a browser to find the line stops and the correct direction. replace [lineid] with something in the form Operator_linenr_direction. check the timepointcode (tpc) for the stop you want to use. Based on the example at step 1: we find "TimingPointName":"Alde Leie, Brug","TimingPointCode":"20320110".

  3. Use:[tpc] and replace [tpc] with something in the form of a 8digit number. Mind the change from line to tpc in the URL. Based on the example in step 2 use: Check the result. The passes part should contain busses, trams or boats stopping at this stop. All lines halting at this stop are included. If all looks good, copy the tpc into the config.
