View multiple stops

Ability to merge two stops together in a bookmark. For example: 5th Ave & Jackson AND IDS Bay D: I wait for either a 550, 216, 554, or 211 to Mercer Island and have to jump between two bookmarks to get arrival times. If I could filter the results, that would be even cooler!

Offline/No Service Cache for Tunnel Riders

Caching of the stop schedule would be helpful. As I approach the DSTT I check the University St Station Bay A (#565) arrival times. Once I enter the DSTT I have no way of checking that listing again due to lack of signal in the DSTT. If this list could be cached so it can be checked without service it would be helpful so that I know the order of buses/trains arriving in the tunnel. My express (MT 316) is infrequent ...more »

time accuracy

give some information regarding the accuracy of the times. Generally, they underestimate the times, but I have missed the bus once when I cut it close. Sometimes it says arriving when its not yet in sight.

Also, when buses change numbers it can get a little confusing perhaps. Not sure about this.

5 minute reminder

A lot of times when I'm waiting for the bus I'm inside my home until the last minute, or plying a game at the bus stop. It would be cool if we could select the arrival time according to one bus away, and set a chime or reminder tone a few minutes before. Then we know to make ourselves visible to the driver, and/or hurry up and get to the bus stop. :) just a thought.

Toggle between stops at transit centers

It would be nice to be able to slide the screen to either side and see other stops in the particular transit center or Park and Ride. It is not practical to save all the stops as favorites, then you would need favorite favorites... and getting to the stop next to you involves going to map, zooming in and trying to click on the near by stops, which takes quite a lot of time and is quite cumbersome. It should be very ...more »

Pick a bus you're on and get contextual information

A button for "I'm on this bus" would then give out some kind of dashboard for bus performance, whether it's on time, ability to see possible transfers in relation, etc. and allow you through group agreement to be able to track bus delays and position without having to have equipment on the bus. Also, this could evolve into you already know where the bus is and you could provide users a pop-up saying "it looks like you're ...more »

Break schedules

On the Metro schedules, they have symbols that indicate certain things about the route, such as "D" to indicate that the route does not run during UW breaks. It would be nice to have these symbols on the stop schedules, as during breaks it often lists buses that are not actually running on those days.
