Launching The Bristol API

The Bristol API logo

Today we joined forces with Bristol City Council to launch The Bristol API, the first city-wide API platform outside of London to launch in the United Kingdom. The Bristol API is a data platform that will provide developers with free access to a wealth of transportation and smart city data from Bristol and beyond.

UrbanThings was delighted to win the tender to provide this solution and have been working hard behind the scenes to deliver a robust, scalable solution to meet the needs of one of the UK’s smartest digital cities.

If you’re interested in putting the API through its paces, register for an account, then check out the online documentation to get started. There’s even a suite of Mobile SDKs to build a mobile app in minutes. If you’d like a practical demonstration, we’ll be running a transport-themed Challenge Event at Watershed on Saturday 23 January. The developer of the most innovative creation will win a cash prize, with the year’s overall winner being awarded £1,000 worth of customised app design assets from leading creative agency Big Mallet.  Register here.
