The TripGo API allows you to plan door-to-door trips using a large variety of public and private transport. It integrates real-time information and, for selected providers, allows users to book and pay for transport.
1. Getting an API key
Get an API key. You can try it out for free for as long as you like, as long as you stay below a threshold of API calls - no credit card required. For limits on the free tier and pricing, see the SkedGo website.
It may take up to 5 minutes for your key to be active.
Once you have an API key, send it along with every request as the
2. Make a request
Our API can do a lot more than just directions, but if that is what you are interested in, then try something like:
curl 'https://api.tripgo.com/v1/routing.json?from=(-33.859,151.207)&to=(-33.863,151.208)&departAfter=1532799914&modes=wa_wal&v=11&locale=en' -H 'Accept: application/json' --compressed -H "X-TripGo-Key: $tripgoKey" -g
curl 'https://api.tripgo.com/v1/routing.json?from=(-33.859,151.207)&to=(-33.891,151.209)&modes=pt_pub&v=11&locale=en' -H 'Accept: application/json' --compressed -H "X-TripGo-Key: $tripgoKey" -g
Keep in mind that this API is optimised to return a large number of trip results while maintaining small response sizes. This has a number of complications. Notably, to get a trip's segments you need to combine the segment references with the segment templates. This is explained further in the F.A.Q..

If you're a backend developer, dive into the API specs, which are available in OpenAPI (formerly Swagger) format.
If you know how to debug a web app, look at the network activity for our web app to get an idea of which API calls to use when. (Filter for "satapp".)
