This is a great idea and may make transit authorities see the weakness in their service - at least round here.

Why isn't this publicised more? It is much more useful to us than the one we are all hearing about concerning refugees!!

This is exactly why it is a great idea for transit authorities to see what a lousy job they are doing. I hope they get feedback for what people are asking them for. We have had friends planning to visit us and tell us they are happy to get public transport from SFO and really don't believe us when we tell them there isn't any.

Parent asks why it isn't publicized more. Maybe because it sucks. It must be in beta test because it's useless in its current form.
