SEA/TAC

Need SEA/TAC to Seattle Sound Transit Link light rail. That is why I bought this. Even that transit agency is pointing to this app for that information.

World Map

Since this application is Washington state specific, the map should not start at a world view perspective. If anything, it should give the option to have a default area, or stay at the last viewed location and wait for user input.

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?

Add arrival alerts to SMS Service

That way riders who don't have smart phones and aren't online will know when to leave for their bus.

"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.

Search by route

On the web tools, let us search by route number and not just stop number. There is no easy way to find the route for 255 because it defaults to stop 255, which is not what I want.

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 »

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.

Integrate Agency Announcements (Delays, etc)

Work with KCM & ST to integrate announcements into OBA on all interfaces. Currently I receive email alerts when ST announces delays to their services; perhaps they would consider an RSS feed that could be integrated into the OBA app suite.

Missed bus

Would love to see the most recent bus, so I know if I really missed it or if it's late.
