Changelog:
1.6 Fixed issue with missing buses after using favourites. Added weatherbug temperature in top right. It will show "R" before temperature if there is a 40% chance of rain. Favorites should be working great now and app remembers the route criteria you last used.
1.5 Compensated for broken nextbus api. Added toast notifications under lock screen so you'll still know when bus that you're waiting on is coming without unlocking screen
1.3
* Optimized OneBusAway service to be more data efficient
* Fixed timing issue with directions which cause app to crash
1.2
* Fixed issues with Seattle area and OneBusAway service
* New progress bar mechanism
* Retry service call with backoff if xml data is not what's expected. (Sometimes services re-initialize for maintenence)
1.1
* Utilized Nextbus directly rather than through proximobus
* Added CTA, Trimet, BART, OneBusAway and MBTA subway services.
* Refactored to use reactive rx
* fixed application errors that would sometimes occur (retry to get data from service with backoff for up to 5 times)

Now you'll know where the bus is now!!!

Realtime Transit provides you with predicted arrival info from the public transit system... As of this writing, software supports Nextbus, CTA, Trimet, BART, OneBusAway and MBTA subway services.. These services together aggregate realtime data in Massachussets, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Portland and more. In addition Bing Maps provides transit directions if you don't know which bus to take and walking directions to the stop you want.

Features:
* quick glance-and-go startup to the stop you looked at last
* realtime tracking of public transit arriving at a certain stop
* transit directions if you don't know which bus to take
* walking directions to the stop you selected
* favorites
* mapping of routes, stops and vehicles on the route
* fast route selection similar to wp7 phonebook
* application is FREE with non-obtrusive advertizing

    Shows "Me" on the map, but when I press "Closest Stop" it zooms to stops almost 10 miles away. It is also agonizingly slow.

    This is the *only* good real time bus app for the MBTA. Don't waste your time with anything else.

    Bad before, but with the update it crashes after four seconds, so I don't have to dwell on how bad the app is.

    Awesome ...really worked for me.can't tell about others. But it's really simulates the real time locations of buses (unlike others) ;-)

    Overall tracking of busses is generally spot on. Error with favorites with Trimet. Always defaults to the Max blue line instead of the favorited route.

    Very nice for MBTA in Boston. Would gladly pay; awesome that it is free! Addition of live tile updating would be nice.

    Wired app, totally unintuitive

    Needs all transport options. I'm sure nextbus supports subway

    Hard to read not giving me what I need nothing like Google maps
  • by soopagroove 5/17/2012
    I set it to City of Seattle. It shows provider is OneBusAway, but only shows Seattle Street Car line. No busses, no light rail. Maybe I can't figure out how to use it, but then usability is poor.
