What is it?

The FastJP API is an Application Programming Interface (API) that offers superior journey planning and fares calculation for the rail network in Great Britain.

Who is it available to?

Anyone who wishes to sell tickets will find the API indispensable. Typically you will have already have a retail licence from the Rail Delivery Group, or offer services to rail industry clients who are licensed to sell tickets.

What features are available?

  • Provides all available fares for journeys, including National Routeing Guide validation, packages & supplements and itinerary-based pricing using split ticketing
  • Intelligent analysis of fares and routes, providing cheaper journey opportunities than competing systems
  • Offers a highly flexible range of journey options, from fastest / most expensive to slowest / cheapest, including "alternative" routes that no competing system offers
  • Multiple railcard optimisation including Groupsave, full support for interavailable fares in the London area including zonal add-on fares
  • Fully integrated support for Retail Control Service (RCS) and IPTIS Data Management System (IDMS) Reference Data

What is the cost?

FastJP licences are negotiated on an individual basis and will depend on the type of application, the expected volumes and, if you wish to use our optional split ticketing technology, any fees charged to the end customer for such bookings.

Can I use FastJP without writing my own website?

No. FastJP is designed to plug into your existing infrastructure and you will need the capability to issue tickets, make seat reservations etc. independently.
