Kudos / feedback

I'd love to have a low-friction way to give the bus drivers kudos when they have a smooth ride, or when they are especially kind with a difficult passenger, or show care for cyclists and other road users in a way that their managers can also see. (Maybe also complaints, but aim for positive reinforcement.)

Better alerts

I think there should be a second option when you set an alarm for a bus such that instead of being like a text message, the sound and vibration is more like an actual alarm where it doesn't stop until you dismiss it. The notification style does interrupt currently playing audio very well and is easy to miss.

Thanks again.

If the One Bus Away app actually told me that 'hey this bus stop is affected by maintenance issuses. Be advised. ' Then i could've saved time. By the app not telling riders that their bus route is affected it fucks it all up. No one actually uses the website to see ...more »

Add non-ORCA affiliated transit system schedules to OneBusAway

I'm guessing there are many regions besides the Puget Sound region which are served by the OneBusAway platform which has linking non-participating transit systems of which presently are not included in OBA's database. Although I principally use Community Transit, I sometimes use Island County's Island Transit System, as I live near Stanwood which is linked with Island Transit. Island Transit, along with other not ...more »
