    I made a new version of my mbta bus viewer program. It now takes you straight to a map instead of making you choose routes first. You choose a place, either by zooming or with the text box:
    Then when you have chosen a limited view, the "Add Routes" button will only show buses and subways that have stops within the view:
    Once you have it zoomed and showing the routes you want, you can use the "permalink" link to bookmark that view.
