Hamburg (HVV) public transportation module - using realtime data



  • I’ve created a module for public transportation in Hamburg (Germany) which shows next trains/busses departing from your station. It’s using the HVV API with realtime data. Currently only train realtime data is working. It’s based on a modified version from Bangee’s SwissTransport module.

    I guess it’s only of use for very few people, but I wanted to share it anyway 🙂

    It’s still BETA and the very first working version, please be patient 🙂

    Find it on GitHub:

    Also I added a small article on my blog on how to install and how to obtain an API key: https://lane6.de

    Hie George90,

    is it possible to have also Deutsche Bahn trains in your module. For exampe all departures from Hauptbahnhof?

    Regards,

    André



  • You can check on www.hvv.de - If I go to: http://www.hvv.de/fahrplaene/abfahrtsmonitor/index.php and look for the HBF, I get all ICE etc. trains.For them there is no realtime information available 😞

    If you want to see the DB trains, check out the module which uses the Google API.



  • @georg90 This is so cool. Love it! Fun Fact I am moving to HH again in several months. Will use it then 😉



  • Hummel Hummel georg90,

    thanks for you local-support.
    The link in your github description is old and doesn´t work anymore.
    You can use http://www.hvv.de/fahrplaene/abruf-fahrplaninfos/uebersicht/index.php instead which gives you 4 options to choose.

    Your MMM isn´t installed on my Raspi at the moment but as soon as I have a better understanding of my Raspi and the MM2 I will install it!!!

    Best wishes from Winterhude



  • I’m from Hamburg, too. Cool module. Can’t really use it right now as I’m rarely using the HVV, but I might check it out and maybe play around with it a little.



  • @georg90

    I am about to install it on my setup. Unfortunately due to the old link its not possible. Although you can ask HVV for a Geofox-API I am not quite sure, if it is the smoothest solution.

    What do you think?

    What do you mean? Since there is no official (open) api as of now, you’ll need to apply for access. I don’t use the addon at the moment, but I think it should still work, maybe some adjustment needs to be done to work with the latest version of the api. I’ll pick this up soonish as I am currently gathering materials to create a new mirror for myself 😉 But I don’t know when I’ll be ready.

    Edit: Just checked, there is an api. But the geofox should still work 😉 I will switch to the public when I will pick this up again.
