If you don't have accurate times for a route, say that.

If you don't have accurate time information for a route, please put up a message that you don't, and don't default to the "on-time" message. I've been trying to ride the 232 at approximately 6:00 PM for the last several days, and the service keeps telling me the bus is coming when, (according to Metro because I called to complain), it has been blowing through the stops early. It is VERY, very frustrating for my phone ...more »

Filter one bus route in one step

New option "deselect all" when filtering by bus route in a stop. Alternatively, a "show only this route" option can be useful.

 

The new proposed option is intended to help filtering in highly-served bus stops by easily show one or few routes. Currently, users have to manually deselect each of the bus routes.

Express only

On routes it applies, I'd really like to filter for Express only.

Reminder/alarm

It would be cool if you could set an alarm reminder to go off a few minutes before a scheduled stop.

Need easier way to submit bus stop numbers

Make it easier to locate bus stop numbers. The NB and SB stops in Redmond outside the OTC (for route 245) were really hard to find because they did not seem to want to display with the bus icon on the map in the phone app. So I had to search pretty deeply on onebusaway.org on my PC to find the rout maps, and therein I found that all stops are listed and was able to click on those two to get the numbers. This was a lot ...more »

Keep extreme delays posted

I experienced that if a bus is delayed past it's due time it is just dropped from the tracker. It's then hard to give accurate feedback about a very late bus.

Transportation Election News Function on App

Commute Riders - Unite! I think raising awareness amongst bus riders about the politics of public transportation is very important. King County recently rejected Prop. 1 that would have allowed funding to pay for transportation service costs. Riders especially, who depend on the bus as a mode of transportation, should be encouraged to make their voice heard at the ballot box with related news feed. Something to read...while ...more »

"show arrivals" link hard to click

I'm not sure if it's the phone (Motorolla Cliq XT) or your app but it is next to impossible to click the "show arrivals" link after selecting a stop (the stop "pop-up" just disappears)

Predict optimal stop to maximize walking

Use your location and speed -- e.g., walking or biking -- and bus location and speed to predict how far you can get (which stop) before the bus catches up with you. This maximizes walking and biking, without changing the total travel time.
