Montreal’s scheme is only slightly smaller than London’s – maybe 80-90% the size of ours, & similar usage characteristics – big peaks at the rush hours.

The 30 mins mention on the TfL page is a developer guideline – i.e. it is saying that anyone using the feed (which itself will be updated every 3 minutes) should not store it for longer than 30 minutes if displaying it to the user as “live” data. In practice, developers will probably pull the data in at least every three minutes.
