Please create a legend/explanatory page

Am I just really dense in that I'm not 100% sure what the info you're displaying means? It would be great if you had a legend that explained what the columns and colors are. Like, for my stop when you list a time and then say there's an X minute delay and then have a blue -2 minutes, what does that all mean?

"Smart" bookmarks

A common use case is that I take the same bus at the same time everyday. It would be great to be able to define a time period where a certain bookmark becomes the default stop selected when I open the application. So when I open the app on my walk to the bus stop in the morning, it already knows what route I'm looking for information on and takes me directly to that stop instead of the bookmarks screen.

User-driven Ferry reporting

The ferries don't offer any "on-time" information (other than alerts when they're catastrophically late), but I thought it might be possible to have users click when the ferry gate goes up/down, which would give other users great insights into whether the boats are running on-time or a few minutes late. Might have the side benefit of identifying and motivating the network of users of onebusaway.

Notification

I would like to see a feature to set a notification feature. Example, if someone is waiting at a bus stop near a store and would like to go inside the store for a little to wait in case it is extremely hot or inclement weather. Their phone would remind them that the bus is almost there and to head outside depending on how much time they set and based on the GPS in case the bus is a little early. Also, not only be able ...more »

See other routes stops when viewing a route as map

When using the "Show as map" feature, it would be helpful to be able to see stops for other routes just the same as when in normal view and subsequently click on a stop in another route and show it as a map. Currently, when viewing a route as a map, only stops for that route are displayed until backing out of viewing that route as a map. This would be quite helpful when looking at intersecting or connecting routes, especially ...more »

Historic Delay Data / Ave Delay

Do you have historic "on-time/delayed" information for each bus/stop combination? It is nice to see the last few buses, but it would be excellent to have a link to see the performance over the last week (e.g. for the 358 bus at the Aurora and N 100th Stop it was... 9 min late, ontime, 5 min late, 1 min early, 10 min late, etc... for the entire week. Additionally, you could add an 'AVERAGE' time delayed for each Bus/Stop ...more »

Add Intecity Transit to application

This looks like a great application and I might even buy a mobile device because of it. Is it possible to get the Intercity Transit buses added to this? The 601/603 route between Tacoma and Olympia is shared by both agencies. Based on my schedule, I take a PT bus one way and an IT bus back. Thank You.

Per-stop filters

On the multiple-stop page, it would be great to be able to apply route filters on a per-stop basis.

 

For example, I'd like to add both the Summit Ave 8/43 stop and the Bellevue+Olive 545 stop to one page, but if I add the latter, then I get lots of annoying duplicates.

Bus route changes throughout the day

Inform about buses that continue on as a different number. For instance, 43 occasionally becomes 44 near the U-District. During the day this happens very rarely. As the night progresses, it happens more often. It's damn near impossible to tell if a 43 will turn into a 44 when buses are running late. I've seen a line of 43's arrive, where I knew one would become 44, the others terminate sooner.

Starred list reordering and button behavior

Allow re-ordering of starred stops on android -long press and drag would be awesome. The reason being that not all trips are single bus rides and it would be good to be able to group transfers. On a similar note it would be cool if the starred stop shortcut took you to the starred stop list every time - if you didn't back to the starred list after using the app it will take you to the last page instead right now. Awesome ...more »
