Alerts

It would be nice to be buzzed a minute before the bus (train etc.) arrives. Especially when waiting indoors away from bad weather, an alert would give time to pop out as the bus arrives.

Show route with live bus locations

Would love a feature that let's me select a bus route and show me live bus locations on that route. Would be comforting late at night when the buses are late that one is actually in route.

Link to full route schedule

It would be nice if there were some way to access the full route schedule when searching for a route or selecting a particular bus from a stop, either in the app itself or just linking to the appropriate agency's schedule web page.

Plan a trip

The app should allow you to plan a trip and find out where to get on and off. For example you type in the address where you are the the address you need to get to and the app will tell you the best bus to take and where the stops are

Schedule

It would be nice if you could see the schedule for a stop when you select it on the iPhone (as is possible in the website). Thanks!

This is a great app!

I love this app. Had it on my iPhone 3G but never really worked for me. Just went through some app I planned on deleting and it happen to work. Love the app I use it everyday when going to school. Beats carrying those bus scheduler books around. Plus let's you know exactly when the bus is coming and what bus you missed. I just there was a "Favorite" button so I can save my route. Great app!

Show a bookmarked stop in the map

If it's not already possible, it would be nice to be able to go from your bookmarks, to a specific stop, and then one button to get from that stop's info page to the map page showing that stop rather than centered on your actual current location, so you can quickly scroll around and find other nearby stops.

Show Screen after iPhone locks

Some mapping apps on iphone will continue to display even after iPhone locks. This is a nice feature because it preserves batteries and you don't have to enter your password to see the latest status. I'm not sure if it is relevant for other phones.

Save multiple instances of a stop to your bookmarks

Add multiple instances of a stop to your bookmarks. Based on where I'm headed, there are a number of routes I can take to get there, but I don't go frequently enough to remember which bus numbers get me where. If I could save a stop to bookmarks, but set different filters to each instance, I could easily figure out what bus to take depending on where I'm going!

Option to filter routes on map

In the map view it would be nice if we could filter stops by several buses. Sometimes I have several options for which bus to take and so I'd like to be able to only see stops which have any of the buses I need
