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.

Might have the side benefit of identifying and motivating the network of users of onebusaway.

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 »
