Show lines on the map (especially in mobile apps) of a route, not just the stops. This would be helpful for seeing a whole route from a mobile phone.
Allow users to select a particular bus at a stop and see what route/streets it follows plotted on the map in iPhone app.
It would be so nice to plan a route so you could see which bus routes you need to take to get to your desired destination.

I suggest you...
Add real time (GPS based) arrival info signs at each bus stop on a route (or at least the transit stations). A solar powered, black and white LCD info sign using a cellular transmitted GPS based program like ONE BUS AWAY to provide the real time bus arrival data...

Review Seattle Schedule 2 route info. stops are not in sequence. they are in alternating direction order (a non-sequitur zig-zag amalgam, as if made by an AI program that alphabetized stops, rather than looked at route-map
route 77 northbound doesn't show up in Intl District Station - Bay A
It used to show up couple of weeks ago, now it doesn't, even though the bus still comes.
Maybe ad a section with links to the full route schedules on their respective web sites to allow for easier, more accurate round trip planning when A time line is needed to be kept.
