I would like to create a mobile website which will look at feeds from Transport for London in order to get live bus times - http://www.tfl.gov.uk/businessandpartners/syndication/default.aspx which I can use on my iPhone. TFL already have a website but its not really suited for mobile devices.
Because I am still a beginner I have no idea where to start. Can anyone give me some pointers?
Is this too advanced for me at the moment?

Usually, you can use ajax/JSONP to call the information and parse it into your site template. Since this will be for mobile, you can use Phonegap to help get it into your iPhone.
jQuery has an example using JSON/P and the Flickr API here:

Thank you very much. Funnily enough I was reading up on JSON today.
I won't be creating an iPhone app just yet, just a website which is formatted for mobiles.
