Almost 5 years ago, I hacked this site together in about 20 minutes between pub and work as a piece of material exploration. It was built by reverse engineering TFL's internal API, which was never going to be a sustainable thing.

While I never intended it to be a service that people relied on, to my surprise quite a few people are still using it daily. Which was fine, as, in all, I probably spent about 10 minutes over those 5 years doing one line fixes to keep it running on heroku.

But yesterday TFL finally (and completely fairly, so no blame to them) shut down that unofficial API that I should never have been using in the first place. They now have (and have had for quite some time) an official API in place for exactly this.

However, I'm crazy busy right now. I may get around to fixing it in the next few weeks when I get a spare hour, but if anyone wanted to fix it so it's using the official API before then, I'd definitely accept that pull request and push it to live ASAP.

In the mean time, I'm sorry it's broke.
