Got an idea for a brand new feature for OneBusAway? Report it as a new feature!

Add option to search for "next bus to XY"

Sometimes there are buses from different stops to essentially the same place. It would save time to be able to search them in one go by asking the client for all buses to (e.g.) 4th & Lucile, instead of having to check each stop where one might be coming in turn.

Ability to merge two stops together in a bookmark. For example: 5th Ave & Jackson AND IDS Bay D: I wait for either a 550, 216, 554, or 211 to Mercer Island and have to jump between two bookmarks to get arrival times. If I could filter the results, that would be even cooler!

Offline/No Service Cache for Tunnel Riders

Caching of the stop schedule would be helpful. As I approach the DSTT I check the University St Station Bay A (#565) arrival times.

time accuracy

give some information regarding the accuracy of the times. Generally, they underestimate the times, but I have missed the bus once when I cut it close. Sometimes it says arriving when its not yet in sight.

Also, when buses change numbers it can get a little confusing perhaps. Not sure about this.

Trip planner/ more route times

Unless I'm missin it, you should include all the route times, not just the next one to depart. Also, it'd be great if you guys could create a trip planner for those who take multiple buses. Other than that, great app guys!

Light rail/trains

You should make some sort of time table for the light rail & trains. That would be very helpful.
