  • Lightweight Bus Map

    February 24th, 2015
    tech, transit  [html]
    If I'm running for the bus or trying to figure out when to leave the house then I want to be able to look up stop predictions as quickly and simply as possible. But sometimes I'm waiting at a stop and trying to understand predictions that don't make much sense. I'd still like to interact with something that's as fast as possible, but now instead of just predictions I'd like to see the reports from the buses that the predictions are based off of. Is there a bus waiting at the terminal, or making its way from the bus lot to the terminal? Is there a bus coming that just needs to turn around and go back the other way? So I made a map:

    As before, it's very simple and gives up nearly everything to be fast. No external map tiles, one round trip, minimal graphics. Try it out by going into the predictions page, choosing a route and a stop, and clicking on a vehicle id. Or just try this example.
