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.
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.
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
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!
Have a integrated trip planner. Not a link to the one online but onebusaway' s own trip planner
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.
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!
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.
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
Display minutes until next arrival of bookmarked bus stops in the form of a notification center widget. That way, the swipe down menu will be another easy to access way to know when the bus arrives.
Orca iPhone app that allows you to have orca in passbook/apple pay allowing you to scan your phone instead of card
I can't figure out what the colors mean on the arrivals and departures. Can you add to help?
Also the colors are hard to see for red/green colorblind people.
