Display real-time bus position on the map, using GPS feed provided by Metro. Sometimes it's better to see where you bus actually is to figure out timing
Sometimes there are buses from different stops to essentially the same place. It would save time to be able to search them in one go by asking the client for all buses to (e.g.) 4th & Lucile, instead of having to check each stop where one might be coming in turn.
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!
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 »
Have an option to sort the bookmarks (on iPhone) by proximity to your current location.
Allow users to select a particular bus at a stop and see what route/streets it follows plotted on the map in iPhone app.
Information about the likelihood of on-time arrival can help with the planning of trips.
Please make a Windows Phone 7 app! :)
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.
Put all the suggestions for iPhone features into other mobile apps too.
Unless I'm missin it, you should include all the route times, not just the next one to depart. Also, it'd be great if you guys could create a trip planner for those who take multiple buses. Other than that, great app guys!
Add a widget for an Android homescreen that monitors a certain stop or even the closest stop based on GPS.
add multi-stop bookmarks to the android app
You should make some sort of time table for the light rail & trains. That would be very helpful.
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.
