Touch & Go Timetables:
Touch & Go Timetables
A pubic timetable appears on the Touch & Go Setup screen automatically and irrespective of
whether or not the timetable is actually installed. This occurs because the timetable is included
in a master list of public timetables that Touch & Go downloads from the Funky People web site
every 24 hours or so. Advantages of public timetables:
- they are automatically visible to all Touch & Go users, and so there is no messing about
- once an update becomes available for a public timetable, it is automatically installed
by Touch & Go; and
- public timetables can be withdrawn from service at any time.
Please note that public timetables are downloaded from the transport operator's web site:
it is only the "list of public timetables" that is downloaded from
Funky People's web site. Funky People do charge a nominal fee for listing public timetables.
A private timetable contains the same data as a public timetable, but can only be downloaded
to Touch & Go by entering its URL (i.e., only by people who know where it is). A typical scenario
where a private timetable might be used is within a large company or government department
that operates a corporate shuttle: the shuttle's timetable is placed on the corporate Intranet,
and then an email or bulletin tells Touch & Go users the URL for downloading it.
Funky People typically has no involvement in (or visibility of) the creation and publication of
private Touch & Go timetables.
