Tokyo metropolitan transport module

  • Hi everyone,
    I’m not sure if anyone has attempted this, but I couldn’t find anything. Tokyo seems to be missing from the list of places that have a metro transport module. Quite striking, considering it’s the largest metro area in the world.

    Is there a reason for that? Copyright or reverse-engineered API issues? I just quickly checked, at least for Tokyo Metro there is a convenient JSON API that one could access. This would at least cover train status (normal / delays / disruptions). This would probably be enough since intervals between trains are crazy short already, so there’s little need for a module that specifically shows the next train (in my opinion, that is).

    If there’s no specific reason for Tokyo missing such a module, I might give creating one a shot (recently moved there for an exchange, and now am bored waiting out Corona). So if you’d like to see such a module, please like / comment! Also if you’d be willing to work together 😉

    There’s no reason Tokyo was excluded. These types of modules are usually made by someone that wants it for their own location, then they graciously share it for anyone else that finds it useful.

    Fantastic idea! 👍
