Dirty as hell but works 100% of the time, until Transperth decide to change their json layout, buuut I don't think that's too likely given how slow they are to change anything at all.

Ah well, added to intranet and it does what it's supposed to.
Next up, making a little screen to put next to the exit door
Are there no good 3rd party JSON libraries for PHP?

Tbh I haven't looked, and probably won't cause I don't need to install anything else doing it this way :P laziness ftw.

I found an old RPi model B, overkill really but laziness wins the day again. Found a 5" LCD on ebay for $30 bucks so bought that, now just gotta wait till she arrives
