Rider Updates

I just spent a half an hour trying to catch the A Line in Tukwila because they moved the bus stop for whatever reason when i could have stayed on the train. If the One Bus Away app actually told me that 'hey this bus stop is affected by maintenance issuses. Be advised. ' Then i could've saved time. By the app not telling riders that their bus route is affected it fucks it all up. No one actually uses the website to see ...more »

Add non-ORCA affiliated transit system schedules to OneBusAway

I'm guessing there are many regions besides the Puget Sound region which are served by the OneBusAway platform which has linking non-participating transit systems of which presently are not included in OBA's database. Although I principally use Community Transit, I sometimes use Island County's Island Transit System, as I live near Stanwood which is linked with Island Transit. Island Transit, along with other not ...more »

Add Font Setting

For people who don't want to pull out their reading glasses: I’d like to have a Font Setting option that controlled font properties (name, size, weight, etc.). I'm getting to old for this.

Contacting the driver?

How about contacting the driver when the app is open or the driver can see the users of the app in the area (up to 1,000 feet?) that the bus is around in that moment?

Agency alerting to delay in service

I think it would be awesome if agencies had a way to let us know through this app, a notification, or some other method that a bus is going to be delayed or not running during a particular trip due to unplanned circumstances (bus broke down, bus was in an accident, etc.). We don't need to know what specifically happened, but it would help us better plan for finding alternative ways to get to where we are going, especially ...more »

Search by name of destination to see what bus routes to take

To be able to seach like sea world or 12th & imperial and it shows what bus routes go there. Currently you can't seach by anything but bus route but what if I don't know what bus route to take.

Warning of route changes

It would be nice if you would post changes with routes during events. Let the riders know buses will be detouring early by posting sign at the bus stop this will effect. So you can plan ahead so riders aren't late for work or appointments. They do this in Pinellas County and it's very helpful. Especially when you have to walk further to catch the bus.

Morning/evening preselections

99% of the time I'm at bus stop X in the morning and bus stop Y in the evening. It would be nice to have the stop selected and ready to go when I open the app. If it's the morning when I open the app, it's ready to go with the list of departures at the park and ride. I don't have to wait for the phone GPS to figure out where I am. I don't have to zoom in so that I can pick one of several departure bays. I get my list ...more »

Add option to start with list of frequent stops instead of map

Riffing off of Nathan's idea (http://onebusaway.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Departure-location-preset/538025-8715), I'd like it if I could simply get the app to open with the list of frequent stops. I hardly ever use the map. I commute almost every day. In that scenario I'm only interested in a tiny number of stops. Of course, as Nathan mentioned, in the AM I'm interested in 1, while in the PM I'm interested in another.
