Graph your TFL transactions with this online app

I’ve written a web app that creates a graph of all TFL transactions over the past 12 months.

You can see it working here: http://londoncommute.uk

It’s 100% open source and on github: https://github.com/ElliottLandsborough/monzo-balance

It was made so that I could brush up on react/laravel/docker and the monzo api (and to prove to myself that I don’t need to buy a year long travel card!)

It’s not entirely finished but works for the most part.

Hopefully people will find it useful.

Here’s a preview:

Monzo auth does not submit

I don’t think this will work? Monzo apps have to have the user ID added to them iirc + there’s a limit of 10? Maybe it’s changed since I last used it

Same. Nothing happens on hitting Submit.

Hmm, I did not realise that you can’t use the api for public apps. Oh well, time to close the thread.

It’s fairly trivial to get around - just ask users for their own oauth client/secret + instruct them to set a redirect URI you give :+1:

That’s a plan. I’m going to modify it work with starling as well. And other banks with apis eventually.

Probably should have read the big red warning on the api documentation…

Probably should, yeah.

App has been updated to take your client_id and auth keys now - along with working with starling too.

I tried it but what does it do? :eyes:

What does this mean?

It means you spend 68£ per month on average on tfl services with your contactless.

And if you pick zones 1-6 it tells you how much it would cost you if you were to either buy a travel card or a commuter club travel card.

Admittedly it does need to be labelled and laid out better so thanks for the feedback!

Ahhh ok I get it now, either way still saving just using contactless.

@Danny, yes, assuming my maths are right!

I am guessing you are saying a zone 6 travel card pm is £87.67 if so then that is wrong

Does it include the discounted student travel card prices?

It’s a shame I use my Amex for TfL - I really need this. I bought a travel card when I didn’t need one for my first two years at uni :frowning:

Pretty sure it means equivalent monthly spend resulting from an annual Zone 6 travelcard, which is £1,052 or equivalently £1,052/12 = £86.67 monthly. If you buy 12 monthly travelcards at £101, that’ll run you more.
