From the website: "The oneTRANSPORT data marketplace unlocks hidden data about the operations of towns and regions that reside in a myriad of closed siloed systems across the UK. It then makes this data available through an open, standards-based system with data licences, enabling the creation of new data-driven Digital Transport solutions."
Data are shared by 'data publishers', which the website defines as "public or private sector organisations and individuals looking to share data within their organisations or with others. Such data may be offered “free” or assigned a “fee” of data publisher’s choosing. Data may be in its raw or refined forms."
