An issue affecting all OneBusAway Interfaces

Trip Alert

Ok this is a nice to have rider Alert UC. I'm sitting in Solstice on the Ave enjoying my latte. I need to get to Capital Hill using the 48 around 10 am. I can see the next two times for the 48. These are too early for my departure. So it would be great to get an alert for a selected 48 bus that picks up closer to 10 am. I maximize my time in Solstice and minimize my time at the bus stop.

Enable Bookmark Syncing

I really love this app- I use it every day. Occasionally, I end up needing to reinstall the app due to a restore or something similar for my device. I believe there may be APIs for enabling cloud services to sync data from the app, and I really think getting this going would be great! Not only would this be beneficial for those who need to re-download the app, but additionally useful for those with multiple devices wishing ...more »

iPhone and web based data not consistant.

iPhone and web based data not consistant. Refreshed simultaneously, same bus stop same direction. ie. my iPhone will say 22 minutes arrival time, and web will say 24 minutes. Here's the copied data from web:

Stop # 75417 - E bound

Show all arrivals

route destination minutes

68 NORTHGATE

Bugs

The new interface isn't as intuitive as the old one. It may be a glitch but I was unable to select the bus stop and see what routes were leavinf and when. i had to actually map it out and it still wouldn't allow me to see what times the other routes were cming in.

OpenStreetMap

Allow the choice of backgorund maps to include OpenStreetMap and possibly Bing Maps as well. This would work well on in the iPhone/Android appications. OpenStreetMaps in particular allows users to add in the Public Transport information which can be shown as a layer (see the Offmaps2 application as an example). The use of OpenStreetMaps in particular would make the OneBusAway experience a truley open source one.

Update estimated times even when no new data is received

Continue showing estimated data when connections are lost. Right now OneBusAway may display the same time for ten minutes and then jump straight from 15 minutes to 5 when you refresh. Oops. With AJAX it is entirely possible to have the web page continue updating the information wih no new information from the server. This 'dead-reckoning' data would gradually become out of date (and this should be indicated) but it would ...more »

A Big Thank You!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I was trying to contact a representative to shower you with praises but the contact page doesn't work so instead I'll just post it here. Not even the King Country Metro site has the bus times for my bus stop (nor are they listed at the stop) and before OneBusAway it was a total gamble if I would see a bus in one minute or thirty. Especially since I have to walk a mile to get to the stop, having the ...more »
