|bus, tech, transit
I made a little
script that pulls down the realtime predictions for when my bus
will leave the station, parses out the "minutes" field, color codes it
by whether I probably have time to catch it, and prints it to my
terminal. I leave it running on a terminal in the corner of my
desktop and it looks like:
The color coding is so buses I can probably catch are yellow, buses I can very likely catch are green, and buses I don't need to leave for yet are blue.
I haven't used this yet, but I think it will be helpful and make me more relaxed around leaving.
