Rejseplanen Public Transport


The rejseplanen sensor will provide you with travel details for Danish public transport, using timetable data from Rejseplanen.

Setup

The stop_id can be obtained through the following steps:

If you know the exact name of the stop you can search the stop_id with the following url http://xmlopen.rejseplanen.dk/bin/rest.exe/location?format=json&input=STOP_NAME and put in the name of the stop instead of “STOP_NAME” in the end of the url.

If you don’t know the name of the stop follow this guide:

You will se a output like this:

"StopLocation":[{
    "name":"Engdalsvej/Århusvej (Favrskov Kom)",
    "x":"10078598",
    "y":"56243456",
    "id":"713000702"

Find the name of your stop in the list and the “id” is the one you are looking for to us as value for stop_id:.

Configuration

Add a sensor to your configuration.yaml file as shown in the example:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: rejseplanen
    stop_id: 'YOUR_STOP_ID'

Configuration Variables

stop_id

(string)(Required)The ID of the public transport stop.

route

(string|list)(Optional)List of route names.

direction

(string|list)(Optional)List of directions to filter by.

departure_type

(string|list)(Optional)List of departure types to filter by.

Direction

If you use the direction filter it’s important to put correct destination or else the sensor will not work at all. The direction has to be the destination(s) for the transport type(s) for the departure stop destination, and NOT the stop where you want to get off. Check http://rejseplanen.dk, make a search and use the destinations from there in your configuration. Make sure you use the exact name as the destination(s).

A working example on how to use this sensor with direction:

# Example configuration.yaml entry with the correct use of direction.
sensor:
  - platform: rejseplanen
    stop_id: '008600615'
    direction:
      - 'CPH Lufthavn'
      - 'Helsingør St.'

A NOT WORKING example use this sensor with direction:

# Example configuration.yaml entry with the correct use of direction.
sensor:
  - platform: rejseplanen
    stop_id: '008600615'
    direction:
      - 'København H'

It fails because the destination from the departure is NOT København H, but ‘CPH Lufthavn’, ‘Helsingør St.’ and others.

Examples

A more extensive example on how to use this sensor:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: rejseplanen
    stop_id: '000045740'
    route: 'Bus 350S'
    direction:
      - 'Herlev St.'
      - 'Ballerup St.'

The sensor can filter the timetables by one or more routes, directions and types. The known types are listed in the table below.
